Sunrise Over The Capitol
This is a watercolor of the Calif. state capitol in the morning light. The sky was "painted with little atomizer bottles of red, yellow and blue with these three colors mixing on the paper (140lb. cold press watercolor paper). The foreground foliage was painted very wet on dry with the colors blending while I held the paper in a vertical position. When all was dry, watercolor and whitl opaque paints were splattered and flung on top.
