This is a watercolor 16x20 based on a photo I saw on a site called Paint My Photo a great on line community where photographers put on their photos for artists to paint.
The photo was begging to be painted in my opinion and was put on by a lady 'Lillian Lee.' If you are a photographer or do art of any kind join Here and it will become a source of thousands of free photos to use in your work. The community is amazing and interactive and there are lots of little niches to join and explore.
I'm essentially a 'closet artist' painting smaller pieces that I give to people as gifts. Now that I'm taking out big brushes and waving them around and slopping on gallons of paint it's fun and feels right. I see that term 'emerging artist'. I think I'm still one of those. Shame it took me sixty years!
