Very nice artwork - watercolour ?

Do you mask out to get the seperation and how accurate in terms of planting do your paintings tend to be ?

I'd imagine that they have to be accurate but you must be tempted to move things around in the painting or add stuff that isn't going to be there ?

Gary;
The black line was all hand drawn with a Rotring pen. The image was then scanned into computer and I further manipulated with some free software called paintnet, which is here:

It's Paint on steroids.

Nice. If you were looking for a home for this design, You might contact the Oak Ridge Civic Center at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. They have a huge grassy site around their public buildings, with some monumental outdoor sculpture already installed but lots of space suitable for more....

I believe the city fathers would welcome an unsolicited proposal, and might even find some tax money or some local volunteer contributors to fund it. The style of your vision just shouted "Oak Ridge" at me when I saw it - the town is a special place.
