I've been wanting to experiment with night-time paintings for a while now. It's not easy painting a night sky with watercolor. This particular attempt took eight washes to get the sky uniform and dark enough for me.
Zoe asked me if we could paint together today. Since it'll probably be only a matter of days until she wants nothing to do with me until it's time to buy a wedding dress, I agreed happily. I did this little sketch of the bougainvillea in the courtyard, and Zoe practiced painting cherry blossoms on rice paper.
