This is a watercolor that I completed a few weeks ago but neglected to post. The scene is from the marshes at Edisto Island in the spring.  While on our trip last weekend I snapped more photos of the marshes, some while on a walk, and some from out the window of our moving the car. These are not great photos, in fact some are pretty terrible. What they do give me is an arrangement of land, water and sky, a starting point from which to create a painting. When doing this painting I felt that I got a little hung up on the details, losing some of the freshness. But in the end I suppose it all worked out okay.
