The painting progresses ...

I may crop about 1" or so off the top, and an inch off the bottom. Several more hours work done, and many more to go!

A close up. Many unfinished parts.

"Wash House Whores" watercolor painting in progress.

First time I've done a larger watercolor in several years. My inspiration is two wonderful women who constantly are part of dress-up re-enactments of the old west in a nearby historic town. This was at a special event, where they guarded the 'wash house'.

So is from photo studies I took.
It's about 14" x 22". I'm thinking of possibly entering some competitions with it. I just got downsized from my job (the 5th downsize in 20 months :( ).

This is not easy to photograph - so bear with me.
