Magic Metro

"Magic Metro," 7 x 10 watercolor, 300 lb d'Arches cold press paper
We need more color in our lives, especially these days of being cooped up in pandemic prisons.
You'd think it was drab winter times by the moods infecting our morale. Yet bright colors always improve moods.
Yesterday's "Magic Forest" painting was a start, inspired by fairy tales and the colors of walking in Hafer Park, looking at the skies and clouds. 
I got out today to drive around a little and amid the traffic and concrete, I noticed little color. Wasn't watching.
Today's fantasy is the result in this watercolor, something different again...no brushes.
