MY NEIGHBORHOOD




Once in a while things just go RIGHT, yk? This is how I felt this weekend when I "accidently" started this painting using watercolors instead of my "normal" acrylics. I just grabbed a watercolor pencil without thinking and started shading, then filling in with regular watercolor paints... it was a blast! Normally I don't use a lot of watercolor in my pieces, but I just couldn't stop. I love this style as I feel like my strong points are color and detail. I named it "My Neighborhood" as this seems like a place I'd like to live! :)

Wishing everyone a GREAT week!
