Watercolor of a Seahorse for my beach house

14" x 20"
watercolor on paper

This is a large painting I created before I even knew I would buy a beach house. (I think deep inside, I knew I was headed to the beach.)  My goal was to get bigger in my watercolor painting. I generally paint small in my watercolors, 8"x10" or less. So I went large, and it was great fun. I painted with abandon as I figured I could use the other side of the paper if things went badly.  I was actually pleased with the results.  This painting now hangs in my home. 

Painting with no expected outcome often creates the best pictures because I relax and just have fun. No expectations or pressure.
