I've popped in periodically, lurked and looked. Well, this is my first thread. Many art works in here are so magnificent that I have to squeeze my courage out to post mine. My only pet peeve in painting is that I often make neither preliminary b/w nor color sketches before working on my original images. I usually do a lot of improvisations as I don't have a certain coloring scheme in my head. Sometimes then a good-looking painting depends on my luck.
All was done with watercolor. No photoshop retouching. Hope you enjoy and comments/critiques are very welcome.
