Thanks Katherine, you don't need to ask me...I love your blog and would never mind you using anything I do on it. Thanks Theresa! I don't often do watercolours, but that day I was painting this piece as the results were being released state by state, so it was very emotional and I think it has showed in the work.

It's so beautiful! I like the way you've made the road look like a wet mirror (with the red streaks of the traffic lights just in the center catching the eye) and with dense details, whereas the sky is kept almost abstract with long streaks (it could be rain or tears...). The Capitol has a hazy, remote quality to it, personally I even forgot that it was the Capitoal, it reminded me of the domes of Venetian churches in winter...

Thanks WITRAG, for this vivid analysis, It seems as if you were just picking everything I determined to do while painting this piece.

I've spent quite a while enjoying your beautiful paintings - then I got to this one and thought, there is magic in your watercolours. Congratulations.

Thanks very much Robyn, now that would spur me on when doing watercolours in future!
