Drawing, Watercolor and W/N White

I am trying all kinds of new things. Some, I am not doing well but I really like this one. After drawing with a #2 pencil, I painted with watercolors using BS, Magenta, Azo Yellow and Paynes grey. When it was dry, I splattered wikth W/N Bleedproof white and a toothbrush. The idea for the pole light came from "Capture the Charm of Your Hometown" by Frank Loudin. This was fun!

Oh, I Forgot.  I used Payne's Grey and Susie's Brush for the swirling snow.    I also used a circle template and a Mr Clean Magic Eraser for the moon.

I love the warm glow of the buildings in the swirl of snow.

Fantastic job! Good idea to use the magic eraser for the moon, isn't that just the most awesome tool for watercolor?!

The Magic Eraser is just too cool. I have seen people cut stencils of figures, boats, and trees and just wipe that part out of a finished painting. I always buy another when I go to the grocery because , heaven forbide that I would run out!
