Passing Storm

Passing Storm

Watercolor and gouache on paper, 14.5″ x 5.5″

It’s been raining a lot lately. We still need more rain because of the drought, but this has been very good so far.

I started this with a very different landscape idea, but I was painting with too much reservation and on a different paper that I wasn’t familiar with, so it was wasn’t working well. Then I stopped hesitating and began covering the paper in black paint until I got a different idea, turned it upside down, and it became this. Although it’s still small, I think this is the biggest watercolor painting I’ve made in a very long time. I mostly used charcoal black and lamp black.

I really like this wide format, but to post it here I have to shrink it too much, so click the image for a larger view.
