Paris

Paris, watercolor photo, 5x7


I did another watercolor photograph. This time from my favorite foreign city, Paris. It was printed on watercolor paper in black and white and then painted. The trees came out so dark that it was difficult to get them to look green like they did in the colored photo but it still has that antique postcard look that I really like. Except for the modern cars and dress of the tourists it could almost pass for one. This is fun and quick, almost instant gratification except for the hours it takes me to look through my photos, choose and edit one for painting. The painting part is always the fun part.

  2. Yes- this is gorgeous. I laughed about your comment in finding the right photo. That's exactly how it happens in art... finding the composition and image you want to work with. Your ability to "see" wins again. You picked the absolute perfect one. I love your taste!
