We're at the supermarket early, hoping to beat the crowds before the big snowstorm arrives late tonight. While Jeanette is shopping, I stay in the car and amuse myself with my watercolors.
It's too cold outside to paint, so I sit in the driver's seat and try to capture the view in front of me. I like the low morning light, which casts long shadows. (Link to video on Facebook)
After laying down some basic perspective lines, I start with the car in front of me and work my way out from there. Once I commit to painting a given car, I try to finish it directly, because I know it may not be there long.
Technical notes (with links to Amazon):
• I'm using transparent watercolor from a Schmincke watercolor set for 95% of this painting.
• The book is a Pentalic 5" x 8" watercolor book
• For the soundtrack of the video, I place the digital sound recorder next to the shopping cart return.
