Palm Springs View - Twitter Art Exhibit 2016

For this year's Twitter Art Exhibit which will occur in March in NYC, I decided to try something different - something I rarely do, and that's to paint something scenic. I was deeply inspired by a photo a friend who lives in Palm Springs posted to his FB page. Luckily, the size for the art for the exhibit is small - post card size. So, if I really messed it up, I would be able to start over without feeling too depressed about it. :-) I sketched free hand ( which I always do, whether from my mind, or reference ) the scene making minor changes. I marked where I will be cutting it to size in pencil, but I always work before cutting out the exact size I need the art to be. This allows complete coverage of the area and I feel it gives me sort of a psychological freedom to extend a bit beyond the area allowing me to design a better piece. I worked in watercolor and gouache, which I love. And for once, I didn't outline anything in black, which I normally love to do. I'm always willing to paint new things, and experiment with new mediums and styles. I feel it keeps me on my toes. I love the challenge.
