Demo at the Colorado Watercolor Society, part 2

This is a detail of the finished stage of the painting I started in my demo at the CWS general meeting last week, as reported in my last post.

The detail shows the variety of the color, texture and brushwork that went into the piece. Some shapes have been refined, added, lifted, taking advantage of the characteristics of the Aquabord support, whereas other shapes remain as first placed during the demo.

Below is the image of the complete painting:
A Morning in Inistioge, Ireland
. Watercolor on Aquabord, 16x20.


  1. Hi Marcio,

    I saw you working on this at the demo night. It is wonderful. I love all the beautiful muted grays and coppers with the subtle touches of blue.

  2. Thank you, Lorraine. I'll bring the finished painting to the next CWS meeting, hope to see you there.
