Chattanooga ChooChoo

New Version


Yesterday's Version

Today I reworked my collage from yesterday - adding a lot of watercolor washes to the surface and I like it much better.  I also renamed it!  It is no longer "Spirit Reflections" because I now think it looks like an old fashioned train engine!  I have renamed it "Chattanooga ChooChoo!"  It is approximately 9" x 15" and is on a piece of matboard.

This is very good and I much prefer it over yesterday's version. The colors are so rich!

Much better! I love the vivid colors and always look to you for color mixes.

Thanks so much, Christiane!
I wanted you to know that for some reason either my computer or google are not allowing me to leave comments on your blog - I have been following it and I love the finished Mascarone! It is awesome.

Thanks, Norena! Sometimes my colors tend to be a little garrish - but I love strong color and value. I love your vegetables - you have to paint them!

I am very fond of these colleges. Great work!

Wow! This one is really great - interesting shapes, colors, values all around and love the title! Gives one the idea of the train wheels rolling on and on and on down the line...
