Breckenridge Snowboard Street Course and a Large Iris

Watercolor 11x15
I love painting irises and began this watercolor by weting both sides of the paper which allows you to have more time to paint soft shapes. When all was dry I used alot of negative painting to define the petals and leaves.
While my daughter Lisa and I were staying in Breckenridge, Colorado at the Tin Shop in their Arts district, they came in and created the first ever street course for snow boarders right outside our front door. It was a festive eveing and great fun to watch as they slid down the bed of a huge semi truck, jumped over a van and used trash dumpsters to grind over - very exciting!
