Sausalito and Watercolor

Sausalito and watercolor, that's pretty much what I was up to for the past week. While we had our new fiscal year kick-off in San Francisco, our company piggybacked a Sausalito cruise for us. The wine was good and the views were stunning, but who would have thought words like "wind chill", "freezing" would be tossed around in the high of July? I highly recommend that you completely bundle up for a Bay cruise like this.

Of late I am intrigued by the details and layers of colors one could accomplish with watercolor, so I picked up watercolor painting again. The first attempt was to imitate Birds of Ashmae's Peony, and I think it turned out okay. The Iris is original and I like how the purple-blue contrasts the yellow when put together.
