**Because of its odd size, this painting doesn't fit any of DA's available print formats. If you would like a print, please contact me, as I can have them made privately.
My latest watercolor goal is to master the use of rubbing alcohol to achieve various effects. The white highlights on the shadows were done by dragging an alcohol-filled eye dropper. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about the final effect, but I love the accidental color scheme. That is to say, I didn't expect the colors in my wash to separate into such a nice gradient.
The model is again Sara, who was previously seen in my painting "Dark Star" [link]
. The title popped into my head, unbidden, during one of my morning walks. FYI, If ever you see me walking and think to wave or honk, don't be surprised if I fail to look up or otherwise notice. Honestly, I'm too busy drawing in my head to notice the outside world, traffic excepted
