CAMEL WATERCOLOR PAINTING is 9 X 12 inches. I started this 'plein air' painting at the watercolor society during a festival there, actually from a photo reference on my phone from a trip to the Bronx Zoo with the grandchildren. I loved the lighting and expression on this guy. (girl?) I didn't have the background done, but using complimentary mixes I did the background and decided it 'passed inspection'.
Ideas are to literature what light is to painting.
