"City Lights" is a watercolor/ mixed watermedia on yupo. I am practicing some of the techniques from classes over the past 10 years while continuing to develop my own style. (27x33" matted & framed.) The lady with the umbrella is from a photo taken of a model sometime ago, which I think adds to the mystic of the painting. I used some cobweb from a Mary Ann Beckwith technique, some touches from Mark Mehaffey's and Pat Dews and of course, John Salminen's class on values. Remembering Alex Power's critiques of my work in following my own heart.
