A Watercolor Landscape with Figures
"Discovery", watercolor 17 x 20"
This is a little different approach for me. Usually my focus is on the figure(s), with the background being secondary. What inspired me about this image was not only the boy in the photo, but the landscape of the buildings and the way they were pieced together.
I was in a tourist shopping area in Jamaica, where everything was manicured and picture perfect, kind of like a Jamaican version of Disney. I decided to duck behind some of the buildings and this is what I discovered.
