N. Main and Washington

Some days I have an idea already in my head of what I might want to paint.  I headed out this morning and totally changed my mind!  Instead of the small focus of the federal style building, I wanted the long sweep of Main Street as I looked down Washington.  Luckily, I had one long handmade paper in my bag, so after switching to a longer format I jumped right in.  I started the rather complicated line drawing with De Atramentis Archive Ink, taking a break as I finished the composition.  The breakfast at the Main Street Inn B&B is amazing  - so of course I put my painting on hold!  After feasting and visiting with the other guests while being entertained by our host, I returned to add watercolor to the ink.  I love getting to immerse myself in such a special place, capturing the moment in ink and watercolor. Painting number 3110 in 3110 days.
