Lunch break

I thought it'd be a great exercise to try and paint during lunch. This one was clocked at 40 minutes.
(gouache on watercolor board)

This felt more like the end of a pop quiz in high school....."TIME! Pencils down!". There's so much more I wanted to change and colors I wanted add, but the point was to capture a scene in the least amount of strokes & time. Really fun exercise.

Lovely sense of a hot afternoon - again brilliant gouache! Agree - cemeteries are a good idea (and not too busy either).
