King St. East Nov.28th Finished

Finished this painting on the weekend so my husband could get it in the post to our oldest son today. Jay will be able to take it to Myra in Manila when he visits in Jan.
Hope you like it Jay!!
I ended up not just using watercolor but then used some white FW Acrylic Artist ink to accent the snow on the trees and ground.
It was good I did not have alot of time as I tend to put too much detail when I do.
Please leave me your comments.

King St. East WIP Step 2

I struggle to paint loose but always feel I need to put in more detail to make the scene believable.
I want to get this off to my son the first of next week so I must get back at it.
So much I want to do and so little time.

King St. East WIP

This is step one of King St. East in Saint John. It is a winter scene that a friend of mine Al Gangon had taken a photo of our 1st snow fall on Nov.28th and gave me permission to use in a painting.
This painting will be 8"x17" so it does not perfectly fit my cameras format.
I am doing it to send to my oldest son Jason in Fort mcMurray to take to his girlfriend in Manila, Phillipines in Jan. for a gift.
