Morning

Enough drawing for a while. Never thought I'd say that since I actually prefer drawing, but it just seems like time for some color. Watercolor in this case. Since there were no watercolor portraits last week that strikes me as a good choice.

What I wanted to do in this was show that early morning light and the calmness that goes with sun up. I love that time of day when the world is just waking up. Too bad it comes so early. There's usually a beautiful calm golden light, not as harsh as later in the day. Add a little bit of ground fog, and I'm ready to go.

Its a great piece and does have that early morning look in both lighting and calmness.

Your watercolour skills are wonderful.

Thanks. I wasn't so sure about this one at first but it is starting to grow on me.

You've certainly captured a calm setting and added to the golden light with the figures dress and hair.

Thanks, just what I wanted to hear.
