'Braving the Storm'

I intend to follow the 'Braving the Storm' painting through on the blog. I'm working on a 22" x 15"sheet of watercolor paper which I've coated with gesso. For the first wash I splashed some blues and browns on the get rid of most of the white.

Here the major shapes are blocked in and I decided to add a couple of doves.

I'll have to work fast to polish this up because, although it's raining now, the storms may be over by next week, the cherry blossoms are beginning to swell and I'll soon want to be working with brighter hues.
