Flowers at the Pier

watercolor 14 x 21

Here is another in the Chicago series. This one is at Navy Pier a neat fun place. This is indoors where all of the little shops are. Again I tried to paint loose, but it will take practise. Lots of practise. I was trying for the reflection of the floor and capturing the light coming from the window behind the flowers.
There are so many exciting things to see and do at Navy Pier so you may see more from this area. Back on my painting bus to see what scene I will paint next. Want to come along?

Lovely colours and light. Fantastic

This is a complicated scene, with background lights, reflections on ground and people. All very difficult, but in my opinion the general atmosphere is got. I'm looking forward to seeing your next painting, it doesn't matter its style.

Sujit, when I saw your profile photo, I just wanted to smile for the camera. That is a good profile photo. Thatnks for your comments :)
Julian..my dear friend. This one does have alot going on. I will look at it today. I may tone down the backgound...but I wanted the lights for the stores to show up. My favorite part is the floor. It took me about 4 washes to get that look. That was my goal and I think I got that part. Thanks for your much appreciated comments.
Today I teach two classes so I might do a demo on this new wc board I am trying out for the classes. Come back and see......
