This is the painting that I just demoed today at Paintworks Art Studio in Okotoks. It was a great workshop and it was very enjoyable meeting new people.
After I got the painting home I added a number of finishing touches. It’s a little wild and wooly but I quite like it. It certainly was a great experience trying to turn this scene, which is in reality a fairly simple one point perspective exercise into a watercolour lesson and teach it. The most significant element I added was the people and the car and trying to use them to create a story.
The bright red banners are visually a neat element. I used cad red light gouache to paint them opaquely on top of all the other paint.
