Quite often when I paint with watercolor, I first plan out my painting, saving the whites. I also like to use a purple under painting to get rich shadows using transparent watercolors. This progression shows how I build up layers for the finished piece. At the end of the painting I "pop" the colors and values. This 28.5" x 21" watercolor of "San Juan Capistrano" is for sale. Prints are also available through fineartamerica.com
