Kansas City Skyline at Convention Center Exit – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor

My friend Jim “Botee” Meyer supplied the photo reference for this painting.  It was a little confusing, but I had so much fun doing it.  I didn’t realize until later that the Sticky-up thingies with the wires coming from them is actually Bartle Hall, and it crosses the highway, too.  Fun stuff!

    The line in this is phenomenal, Beth! I love every bit of it, the color, the composition and the shapes. The skyline seems to dance and pass on your joy of creating. I think I like that the best!
