Where did the time go?

Tom Pohlman from DSFSF has reminded me that the deadline is approaching for the Jefferson Memorial at night painting. So far I have a color scheme, shown here, and the drawing is being put on watercolor paper...plenty of time unless things don't work out as planned. Thanks Tom
I think I might document my steps in painting it as I did with the previous portrait...stay tuned.

Very nice work that you have, congratulations!

I, for one, would love to see your steps in painting! Since I'm a fairly new painter, that would help me immensely. I'm so glad I found the DSFDF blog -- I learn so much from all the artists there!

Adrian--Thanks from a fellow MA resident. Don't lose your passion and the way you feel about all things. I believe still photography is more powerful than video.

Nancy-- Just jump in and have fun, your feelings will take over...thanks.

I know it's your color scheme but it's looks like your tie and shirt :)

Bill, I came to admire your lovely watercolor of the Memorial and scrolled down to this. Really caught my eye. I thought, boy, Bill is really loosening up. Beautiful. Then I read that it was your color scheme. Oh well. I sometimes think that our swatches and try-out scrap papers are another side of us we only get to see by accident.
Thanks, also for the nice comments you have been leaving me on my site.

I posted this so I would be committed to paint the Jefferson Memorial. As it was, I ended up painting it Wednesday evening and sent it at 11:45 PM. too close!
