Watercolor Painting - Hotel d'Europe--Avignon

Hotel d'Europe--Avignon (a la Charles Reid)

Watercolor on Strathmore 400 Series CP paper, 9" x 12" (23 x 30 cm).

I copied this painting from Charles Reid's "Watercolor Secrets" book, because I really liked how, in this painting, he preserved the white paper in various areas, including the people's clothing and the background; something I've had a hard time doing for a long time and am finally realizing how to make it work by studying Reid's techniques.

There's more stuff on my Flickr photostream.

Thanks Barbara! Funny how recognizable Reid's style is, even in a copy. Thanks for checking in!
