Today I lay in my hammock in the back yard and looked out over the fence and liked the view.
I wondered if I could paint it.
I felt I need to see more so I used a bold black marking pen and outlined my painting and got
the top photo that I think you will agree really makes the picture pop right off the page.

This is a technique I learned in a 4 hr workshop I took last year from David Peterson of Sacramento, CA. It's the style he uses.
Being just a tad less than humble I'll remind you that in our recent Juried Art Show this summer,
David won first prize in the watercolor division and
I won second.
(It was only my 6th ever watercolor at the time)
Yep, color me proud.

I called it the Empty Nest Syndrome.
