At this point I began putting in some darks. I used my greens and ultramarine turquoise for the dark. And this time, unlike last, I worked around the painting so one side wouldn’t get too dark compared to the other and hopefully I wouldn’t get bored with it!

And then, I decided to turn it - and I like it better!

Here is the completed painting – which I’m happier with. I managed to keep it lighter and cleaner.

Sunny, 15 x 22, watercolor on Fabriano Artistico 140 CP

Thank you so much for this detailed report on the progress of this beautiful painting. I adore the composition and colours. .. and the way you have applied your washes/pourings gives a stunning glow to the piece. Great.

Vicki and Joan - thank you both for your comments. Still not quite what I had in mind but will live with it and try again some time - they don't all turn out the way we planned!
