Here is the painted version of the black and white drawing I'd done in London. As I stated before, I used a new kind of watercolor block. This one is hot press and I've only used cold press in the past. The paint does not go on so well. Cold Press works like magic but Hot Press is a drag. It takes forever to dry and is difficult to work with. I needed all my skills to make it work. If I can't find a reasonable substitute soon, I may be stuck trying to work with this stuff for a while. It won't be pretty. The result is OK but the ordeal of fighting the piece of paper each time is a nightmare.
