Transparent Watercolor 20x26 cm
This is how I saw 2 soldiers on the train on their way home for the weekend. I love the affectionate way of people here - the natural coziness, being comfortable with being close - both physically and personally. It is especially endearing between soldiers, classmates and the elderly.
This watercolor was painted from the sketch which I made into a value study last week and was inspired by Karin's challenge entitled Work Boots.
Usually, I don't like to talk about the process of painting, but I have to say -
I learned so much while painting this, that it felt as though I had taken a class when I was finished. While it may be overworked and the colors may not be what I had envisioned, this painting will change the way I approach my next work.
