disappearing pencil lines...

 There were many lines under this first "wash" of color
perhaps a cool grey watercolor pencil was the wrong choice?

 Oh why not give it a go without the guiding lines?
I have an excellent reference photo...

Amazing how daylight  at different times changes the color of the painting
still plugging along- petal by petal

How much fun it is working on a larger scale!
This isn't an ACEO

 Almost ready to call it done but perhaps I'll wait a day 
before I do...

is something missing? 

Let me look again...

My Neck of the Woods

 A clock tower - not back to the future though!

 Court House from the front
Including the park block

There is a lot to enjoy in a town on the river

and many more things to see

and on a clear day - the view is amazing!

Mt Hood is about 70 miles away

and here is City Hall
I love the neon sign!
