Watercolor of Old Wagon and Daily Paintworks Challenge

OLD WAGON
Watercolor - 11x15

I submitted Old Wagon to last week's Daily Paintworks Challenge where the subject was wheels. I painted the background first on wet paper with no drawing to start with. After it dried I used negative painting to pull out the shape of the wagon and suggest boards on a barn in the background. This is my favorite way to paint because it keeps things loose and integrates the colors from the background through the whole painting!
