Missouri postcard

I love Missouri. Seriously. My whole family does. My older sister even has a Missouri tattoo. I'm not lying. SOOO I liked this project.

I love float trips in the summer, and the Current River is probably my favorite river to float because of the rolling hills and towering bluffs that surround it. So I found a picture of the Current and painted it. I find that I like doing landscapes. I used watercolor for this 4.5x6 inch piece. I liked the way it came out. Working on this small of a scale was a lot easier than the bigger stuff that we've been doing recently. I wish the work was a bit looser--the short brushstrokes are pretty evident--but overall, I think it came out okay.
