Hana Maui, Alau Island Sunrise

Watercolor, 15x22

Water colors are exhilarating and could be exasperating. This one was done at 7:00 in the morning.  The drawing was made the day before, because I knew I would have only an hour of the light I wanted. Capture all your colors in the first hour and gear the colors applied later to them.  This way you can still finish a picture as the weather changes. 

Always use a #300 paper unless you like going through the hassle of taping down wet paper with a water glue tape. I can wet down #300 paper and hold it in place with clothes pins without it buckling. I can hold a 5.5x7.5 in my hand without having to worry about it wrinkling.
