This was a challenge, to paint such a large watercolor almost at one go. The sky got painted all at once down to the horizon line, then all the water got painted in one big wash, deepening in color significantly toward the bottom of the page. Also, I live in the desert, so paint dries almost instantly, and I needed to keep it moving in four directions at once. I felt a little like Mickey Mouse in Disney's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice, trying to keep the "magic" under control!
