Some time ago, I received a small commission through a silent auction I had donated my painting services to.  The donor wanted a watercolor based on a photograph she had taken several years ago during a trip to Spain.  The site was the Mezquita in Cordoba, Andalusia. 

I enjoyed the beginning stages of preparing a small preliminary sketch, shown above, before I started working on the final piece.  Diving into a new subject and experimenting with various color schemes and compositions was all part of the fun and process of working on this watercolor.
