New Olympic Sport - Watercolor Demo

I submit art demo-ing as a new Olympic Sport.  It requires lots of stamina, agility and quick movement.
This was my demo for the Coachella Valley Watercolor Society annual show this weekend.  I completed this landscape in about 45 minutes.  I did have a pre-painted version of the clouds ready for when I reached that stage, so I could paint in the trees without having to wait for the clouds to dry.

"In All its Glory"  13 x 19" watercolor on 300# Arches hot press.  ( I ran out of cold press which is what I normally use.  Was a little worried how the hot press would handle, but it worked out okay)

Beautifully done Diane! A great idea to plan strategically for the drying time too.
