Watercolor on paper
This is a very early piece of mine, the oldest in the portfolio. It literally took only 15 minutes to paint. What I didn't realize until later, trying it again, was just how lucky I'd gotten with this one. It taught me a lot.
Now, when working on an assignment where this kind of image is the goal, I might end up with a half-dozen bad ones before I get the image to work,...but when it works it's worth it.
