    I like this very much David especially the iron on the building. We call it corrugated iron - same over there?
    June.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    Essential and well rendered. A "silent", but very eloquent artwork.
    Panta rei (everything flows)!

    David, a nicely rendered WC and the rusty barn is a little different I like your sky and see the watercolor paper. I love watercolors and painted them for many, many years before getting into digital work.

    Thanks all...

    Caesar.. Yes.. it's very serene..

    Pat - The barn was my favorite part of painting this... The road and right side were my least favorite

    GXH - Yes.. I love painting the skies on AR.. I put them in.. then zoom in and just stare at the textures a while. I think that's why I love watercolor so much!

    This is very nice. I like the color palette very much...Curious to know if this is a traditional watercolor class you are taking or digital? And if traditional, what the instructor thinks of your digital watercolor.

    Love it. I usually don't like paper/canvas texture because it might conflict with printing out onto something else with a tooth like in the case of a giclee. But this broad watercolor paper 'tooth' is perfect with what you painted. And the palette is sort of Andrew Wyeth-esque regional (overcast natural exterior rural light) -- although the terrain could easily be California, where we do get overcast skies as well. This is a very good painting. Well done. Would look great on the wall.
