Along the Cher - Watercolor


I thought it would be fun to paint the same scene in both oil and watercolor.  I took a little artistic license for a few elements of the original reference, but it's basically the same.  I might just do it in pastel next!
It was a little harder to get the monitor image colors just right with this watercolor, but it's pretty close.  This landscape painting of scenery along the Cher River in France is done on 140# Arches watercolor paper.  It's roughly 13.5" wide by 9.75" high.
