Wake Forest Fireworks – Plein Air Watercolor painting by Raleigh Artist

Happy July 4th! This year we started celebration early with our friends from the Army! What can be better way! We went to Wake Forest for the fireworks. Wake Forest is a great community. This fun event was at the Heritage High School. I initially started a smaller painting. Then we moved so my view changed. So, I started this slightly bigger painting. I use my watercolors like a camera. I like to paint what I see. Of course, I change things as I paint. I did not have an easel so I painted sitting down. I completed most of it on the location. Then there was a threat of storms so we watched the fireworks from the car. I finished the painting back home. Here is the finished piece.
