Lush and Sultry

This is a watercolor on a stone "paper" The surface is similar to Yupo. In my opinion the paint pools and moves a little different on this surface. The photo that inspired this study is posted below. Charleston, South Carolina is a lot like Austin. Lots of young hip business types combined with the seasoned business professionals, college students and barristers and regular folks like myself. Each day that I went out to shoot photos I had to wipe the lens down to remove the moisture. Hot and muggy but beautiful to photograph.
I only worked with 4 by 4 inches of this photo to get the painting posted above which is 8 by 8 inches.
