This watercolor painting was done with a picture of two boats. It has been raining for the past week, so I stayed inside and put this together. I wanted to stress values so put something, the city, in the background. I kept the sky bleak and gray. With two boats I emphasized one, heeding the adage, that there can only be one bride. The colors were mixed directly on the paper. I left the painting on the easel and each time I went by, I kept adding details, which is a danger. Sometimes, it is a tough call to say 'I'm finished'. This happens to me when I make something up on the run.
