This was my first decent attempt at a Charles Reid style watercolor. Of course I took the liberty of adding the architectural caricature in order to add interest. This was also my first use of the Guerilla Painter Watercolorboard that I recently bought. This device stretches the wet paper and adds the raised deckle edges. I now have to figure out how to frame it so that the print does not touch the glazing.
I had previously been allowed to go into the attic of this 1860s building that is now the home of the Benton County Historical Society. The second image is a photoshop manipulated image inside the attic.
