Day 720 – a Watercolor Finally 


I drew this almost a month ago but have been busy painting other things so finally got around to it last nite. 

This is an old theater on Broad Street in Augusta GA which still has shows and YES an Elvis show was and is coming up the end of June at Imperial. 

Painted with Ted Nuttalls transparent colors with the addition of cerulean. I always have a hard time painting white without my beloved cerulean. 

I also used Daniel Smiths primatek colors Serpentine Genuine and Sodalite after seeing samples of them at Jerrys Artarama. You can buy Daniel Smith at most art supply stores as well as online at Cheap Joes and Amazon.  

While I am on the subject of Cheap Joes I know the owner and founder Joe Miller a lovely man who recently received a humanitarian award from AWS. He’s the first to step up and voluntarily help artists in need as well as his longtime home Boone NC. 

During the devastation of Katrina Joe voluntarily went into the Cheap Joes database to find any artist in the seven states affected by Katrina. Each of them received a studio startup gift certificate from Cheap Joes.  He has done this time and again. So BUY from Cheap Joes if you can!! 

Oh before I forget the tree was done with a sea sponge.  I also used Caran d’ache watercolor crayons to add color to the drawing – white yellow and orange. 

I also used a few Winsor Newton watercolor markers – indigo, lamp black, and turquoise. 

Thanks For Checking by.
