"Paddeling the Ohio" WIP

I have to say that I really hated drawing this one. All the technical of the bridge. However, once I began painting it, I have enjoyed it so far. The background and bridge are almost done. This is largest watercolor I have done to date. It is 16 x 20. I chose to go this large because I felt the canoes would get lost with the expanse of the bridge if it was smaller. With the larger scale they will be seen. The large scale might be why it has become fun. The brush strokes are large and free so far. So the next obstacle will be the water. The goal is to be done in two weeks so I can get it to the framer. That will give her two weeks to get it framed for the Oct. 10 Java, Jazz n' Art show. No pressure here...actually, I think I do better with a date towering over my head then too much time to procrastinate. Catch ya at next weeks update. Gaylynn
