And so it begins... story of a watercolor

Actually it began as an idea. 
Then several pen and ink scribbles and changes. Then yesterday's small quick study. Then sketching it onto a larger piece of quality paper. Then cleaning the palette. Choosing  brushes. Deciding where to start, Mixing some colors. 
And then...So it begins, "Storm Watchers," 300 lb. d'Arches cold press paper.
Now to ponder it some more.
