Day 6 of 30/30 Challenge - I'm Late!!

Blue on Blue, 6" x 6", watercolor, $35 

Getting back in the real world, means I got a bit behind in the challenge! I need a day (or two) to catch up! But I am determined, so I picked something simple - or so I thought.

This little dingy is in New Harbor, Maine. There were some interesting boats there and the water was very calm. In my mind, I thought the water was so much darker - then I realized that it wasn't. I tried to pull out the color and lighten it up, but it wasn't working. My solution was to use white and pale blue pastel and wet them a bit to smooth them out. I think it ads a nice texture and depth to the painting.

OK, now to catch up with days 7 & 8 ! EEEK!
