|Watercolor Painting for Sydney harbor viewed to the west|
After finishing the painting I realised all the cars were way to small so I had to spend a couple of days carefully lifting out the old ones and painting the new bigger ones back in. This is the final version.
To put things in perspective the Sydney harbor bridge is about one mile long so the distant shore is a long way away.
I intend to paint this scene a few times, playing with the light for different effects and with varying levels of detail.
For now I will have a break from it and paint some other subject. All told it took me over a week to finish this watercolor painting which is a lot longer than I normally like to take but sometimes it just can't be helped for the subject being tackled.
I intend to publish this painting as a demonstration on my Painting With Watercolors website in the future.
