Market Street, San Francisco

Watercolor Painting, Crossing Market

Brian Bailey, Crossing Market, Watercolor, 10″ x 8″, © 2015

Throughout this week and the last, I’ve been trying to put some new variations into my work.  I’ve been drawing and painting more people.  Some are gesture drawings or portraits focused on the human form and some are extensions of my paintings of San Francisco.  Some streets are teeming with people and it’s interesting to see how they change the feel and meaning of a painting. This painting is about 10 inches by 8 inches but I’ve also been working on some larger paintings and should have one to post next week.

    • Thank you! I feel like there is always more to learn about watercolor so I just keep trying to learn a little each day. Sometimes, I put in details with a small dry brush and sometimes they just fall into place by moving quickly and expressively. I often feel like the goal is to move as quickly as possible while staying mindful. Thanks again!

      • Great tip – thanks Brian. I am VERY new to trying and going with the loose and abstract look for now 🙂 LOL!
