Sometimes I Hit It

This is a painting I did this afternoon and it reminds me of why I love watercolor.  Nothing can compare with the color and brightness it has when it's done right.  This one is done right.  The trouble with the medium is that it needs a sure, confident hand.  It's so easy to blow it.  Now that I look at the photograph, I see that I need a wash of blue toward the back of the road to make it lay down better.  That's a simple job as long as I don't allow myself to be tempted into "fixing" anything else.  I'm happy.
