Here is the watercolor start of studio 2. I am going to let it sit a couple of days and then work more on the shadowing. I’ll repost it and studio 1 when I am happy with the final touches. I like the Japanese maple in the corner. It adds a wonderful pop of warm reds and muted greens. As for the studio, I am sure the choice of paint was all Ruth’s. As an artist, she would have considered what she wanted to see from her kitchen, walk up to, and work inside of. She has been a remarkable artist over a 60 year career.
