Watercolor - Texas State Capitol

What a great day. Sat on a blanket and painted this. Buildings are hard. They have SO MUCH detail on them, ESPECIALLY the texas state capitol. The trick is to have few areas of detail and areas that are generalized. When you have both of these elements, the details become implied. Anyway, I hope you find the painting satisfying! I sure had fun painting it.

Your darn right architecture is hard! But you did a good job of getting the impression of the big shapes and that's all you really need for a painting sketch.

As for my avatar, haha, it's a bird because that's one of my characters that I created and designed a while ago for my senior project. I haven't done anything with him since, so at least he can live on in avatar form :)

Circular buildings are very difficult to draw in perspective. You have no fear.
