Fantasy City Moroccan style

Fantasy city Moroccan style

Watercolor from imagination. This watercolor was almost thrown away and I realized it had redeemable qualities. It was on a watercolor pad and we were traveling with minimum art supplies. It was just a testing of random colors splashed on the pad. It was about 4 years old and had been long forgotten. The only water I had was in a small spray bottle. I had 2 brushes and a small dish on my gouache palette. Believe me it did not start out looking like this. The dark shades were my muddy water mixed with browns and blues which I used to define the shapes. I pushed the paint around and did a lot of lifting with a thirsty brush. I worked on it very gently and slowly for about an hour, a little bit at a time. It turned out amazing. I just love it when little miracles like this happen.
