This woman is a weaver and she was sitting in a dark corner of the marketplace. The sun shone through the archways of the Mexico town plaza. The cobblestone streets are a maze of patterns and colors. Piece by piece, she is coming together. I will add some cast shadows and some detailed drawing elements to help define her more.
This is large, a full sheet watercolor. When you get away from working big, it is scarey to pick it up again. This painting will help me re-discover my old self, when I painted big all the time.
The pallette is my full plastic stephen quiller pallette, now a good 15 or 20 years old. When I grow up, I will get the porcelain studio pallette.
