"U.S. Capitol" - watermedia on matboard - 8" x 10"
This one literally threw me for a loop. I used watercolor pencil. I had lots of ideas for what to put in the skyspace, 'W' waving goodbye? (I couldn't do his face, no matter how much I tried today, I guess cause I am not a fan of his, and besides, to me, it would have been a little too cheesy looking!), put a little of "we the people"in the sky? (not enough room), a face of one of the candidates - or both? (had to be cloudlike, nah...) so I just finished it this way.
Looks like DC on fire! No pun intended.
You can see a little of my failed ideas underneath the sky...ha.
That's as good as it gets some days.
That is why I try to paint EVERY day, to take the good with the crappy! I DO like the way the architecture/structure came out. It's good to do these challenges. I would never do a painting of this subject on my own, so it takes me way out of my 'zone'!
