Watercolor on Paper
A couple weeks ago, my family celebrated my youngest brother's 30th birthday by vacationing at a resort in Reunion, which is just south of Kissimmee, Florida. The grounds were covered with huge magnolia trees. I was instantly drawn to them. I had to grab my camera and snap away. They were simply stunning. Those big trees are what inspired this piece. I love the texture in this piece. I wasn't going for a totally realistic look with this one and the variations and deep contrast make it work. Do you agree? Have a great week, everyone!
Here's the in-progress video of this piece. Complete with music by my talented brother-in-law, Jose Torres (AKA Not Since Sarah.) Enjoy!
