Thirsty country, watercolor

Windmill country, 17 by 22 300 pound Fabriano Artistica paper--the third try on this windmill (see previous posts) I saw near Black Mesa for me. Previous were 9 by 12. I wanted to try something bigger for a frame I already have, and tried some things I saw Charlie Russell do in the exhibit at Fort Worth. More work ahead.
