Evening #9

5" x 5" original watercolor $275.00
contact: andy@andysmithartist.com

This is the same set of buildings as Thursday's
painting only from a different angle and at
night. If you know me, you know I have a
"thing" for moons and moon light. Another
great study of angles and perspective.

I had a question; what is a wash? A wash is a thin
layer of paint and water. I then use a hairdryer to
thoroughly dry it before adding another wash of
color over top. This is how I build color.

Busy day; we did get up at 4am and were on the road by
5am. Set up for the show and worked until 4:30.
Packed up and drove back to Lancaster. We then attended
a Cancer fundraiser dance. There was a live orchestra and we
danced for three hours. Finally feel OK about our Fox Trot!
It is almost 11 and I need to get to bed. If the weather co-operates

I want to ride with the bike club tomorrow.
