Here is a second study (see below for the other one) I did tonight of the Fourth of July Fireworks in Skagway, AK. This was such a great day; bumped into a black bear on the hike to Sturgill's Landing, enjoyed fresh seafood for dinner with some Alaskan beer and finished the day off with an incredible fireworks display over the harbour.
I had started this awhile ago, mostly as a warm up before starting some other work, but I've decided that I actually quite like it, even if it's not finished. Maybe it's because the glass of wine is telling a story here...like that I got impatient and wanted to drink it? I can't remember.

I did some plein air watercolour painting last Saturday (March 31st) at Glenmore Reservoir, overlooking the Weaselhead Natural Area. Being in such a big city it is nice to have areas like this for a little inspiration. The weather has been pretty awesome too!
