Process Doesn't Mean Perfect

Taking advantage of the momentum, I finished another watercolor painting this week. Imagine that? I had just wrapped up one work when I decided I should just keep going and start the next one. 

The paints were out, the other painting was free from the watercolor block, I was there with wet paint brushes, why not?

I'm not even going to start with the whole thing about whether or not this is a good work. Forget it. 

Process, baby, process. Start the work. Keep going until you finish the work. 

Push it. Crush it. Process.

Wanting to get it out of the way quickly I didn't even spend time with the photograph. One shot and I was out of there. It's a little shadowy on the upper right corner, which could possibly be my head blocking the light, but let's ignore that, shall we?
