Watercolor West

Here are two recent paintings. The top one is another try at the Hillside Houses scene which I have painted frequently. The bottom one is of the Colorado Street Bridge by moonlight, and is a modification of a painting I posted last month in which I added some more darks and some accent reds throughout.

The unique thing about these two is that I did not use pen and ink, or white paint. They were done with light pencil lines and transparent watercolor only. I did these specifically for the Watercolor West Annual Show, which requires the use of the medium expressed transparently.
