This is the demo painting I did last Wednesday at Concord Art Association. It does pay to step back and look at the work. Luckily I had a gracious audience that day. They didn't say, "What is it?" Seeing it in the studio today I asked that same question. I knew it needed work: redefining, better shapes and more color.
This is the results. Reworked in watercolor 30 x 22. The lines in the black areas are created by gesso marks. This came about by accident in a prior painting but I like the textured effect.
