The travelers have traveled away, and life is trying to get back to routine.
I started a watercolor, that may be for Leah, if I like the end product. She told me what she liked (which wasn't at all what I had in mind for a spring watercolor picture - I thought of closeup flower blossoms - but I decided to try something along the lines of what she requested.)
Here is the beginning, starting with initial concept sketches:
|A mustang in the West|
|A color sketch of a mountainous area|
|Another horse sketch|
|The masking fluid on the watercolor paper, to retain a white area as the background is worked|
|Initial paint layer, with runs and blooms, which I like but which need modifying.|
Leah, I need your comments, too.
