Watercolor Painting - Beating to Wind

Monotone paintings can challenge the artist to insure values (light and dark tones) are correctly stated. I entered a recent open project with the Art Café Network which required a monotone painting. It was a challenge because I rarely paint monotones. Since the America’s Cup races are coming up, and they are going through the elimination process, I though this would be a good subject. This was quickly sketched while watching TV! I think it captures the excitement.
