Last week, I was invited by Downtown Raleigh Alliance (DRA) to paint at their annual meeting. The meeting with art theme was held at the Raleigh Convention Center. I painted 16×20 watercolor of the NC State Capitol. I decided on this view since it seems to be painted less than the other views. I had seen this view on a rainy day. I am working on a large watercolor of the State Capitol. I love painting cityscapes and Raleigh downtown offers me this opportunity. I painted this watercolor rather quickly. It took me little over an hour, while chatting with event guests. I was glad to see many of my friends and fellow artists who stopped by. I thank Jim Colman of Jim Colman Photography for providing the image of me painting. Both prints and original painting available.
