McCook to Macdonald
This is another watercolor painting I did after being inspired by my friend Carla. I found a very old encyclopedia with pages made from heavy, absorbent paper that I love to paint on. After sketching out the design lightly in pencil, I went over it with a fine tip waterproof pen and then applied a light wash of paint. When the first coat dried (in just minutes) I went over most of the areas with another coat of a similar color to give the painting more depth. The great thing about this project is that it's surprisingly portable and not messy at all...unlike almost everything else I do.
