I tried to go for the crop and the monochrome both. I was also inspired by Dale Laitinen whose work was in the latest version of Artist's magazine, I was really impressed with his attention to line. By default (because I cut off the stuff I didn't like) this went from a 16X20 watercolor with ink to a 14X11 on 140# Canson cold press paper after cropping again, and so that is how it ends. The photo at the 2 hour mark is really blue. It really is not that blue.

Close up. I think I could crop all the way here and it would be a decent painting.
