1.5 x 3 inch thumbnail of pond.
I have a couple larger canvases I'd like to use and be rid of so this afternoon I started doodling pond scenes. This is a small watercolor on bristol based on a composition I see across the street.
Satisfied with the basic shapes and values of this study I will make the larger painting based on this and take brief looks at photo reference for information about water and reflection etc. But the painting will be 90% invented.
