Rondo on the Window Ledge

Click image for a clearer, larger picture.
Size is about 9×12, across a two-page spread in my Fabriano Venezia sketchbook.
My dog’s favorite spot is up on the bay window in the living room, where he can survey his kingdom. He can see all the way across the lake, as well as up the driveway. Best of all, it’s near the kitchen, where he never misses an opportunity to sucker somebody into feeding him.
This was done with my little 24-color Koi set and a single waterbrush that comes with the set. I am hoping to do more plein air sketches this year, and this is probably the most convenient way to do it, so I’m practicing. However, I miss the color saturation of my artist grade watercolors.
