IF: Celebrate Summer

zdepski's watercolor painting Petey's pool party

Celebrate at Petey's Pool Party! Pals are over and the water meter is spinning out of control... TURN OFF THAT HOSE!!!

- darned kids...

Pete is part of the backyard ABCs project, obviously a "P" yard.

I messed with the pool as the negative space in the "P" form, but thought a lesson from Hopper would add something to it, with offsetting the weight of the design to the top right quadrant.

as usual, click to make them bigger.

watercolor is winsor newton on fabriano.
lines are noodler's ink on vellum.
