Point Lobos, finished

Here's tonight's finished painting.

I get funny reactions from people sometimes, who question the way I paint with watercolors. Some have all but told me that if I don't splash the paint around and work mostly wet on wet that I may as well use another medium. I'm never sure what to say to that, except folks are welcome to paint any way they wish, and if somebody likes to do big splashy paintings I'm all for it. Right here and right now, though, I like using watercolor and I like using it this way. Sometimes a piece calls for the kind of effect I get working a wet brush over wet paper, but more often than not, I'm interested in something else.
