I am dedicating this painting to my Mother who passed away on Friday. This was here favorite house that was located across the street in the James Bay area of Victoria, British Columbia. She urged me to paint this scene so this brings to me fond memories.

Where do you start on a piece like this...photo? sketches? precise drawing?

Start with some good photos of the subject. A precise pencil drawing is key for watercolor. (Not a forgiving medium for errors) The drawing contains clues and notes to indicate certain features that I must plan for to make all the elements work. The actual painting takes less time.

Some of your work, David, is a little beyond comprehension with the tightness of the drawing and execution....You must have the patience of a river. This is a large watercolor.Truly amazing piece. Your Mother would be proud.

Charlie, when you do a watercolor this large it is pretty daunting. The picture just doesn't do it justice. This one has a lot going on it so it took me a the best part of a week.
