Charleston Battery Art - a new Watercolor Painting

I had the good fortune of finding a gorgeous picture of the battery in Charleston, SC by Bill Read (at and the even better fortune of his allowing me to use it. Thanks so much Bill!

This is a study. Once I get it the way I want it, I'll do a big painting. Love the splashes in this one! I think I'll work on the pallete of the battery though : ) Hey, since I like contests and giving away free stuff, send me ideas for titles of the final painting. If I use your title, I'll send you a free print! You can leave a comment here, on Facebook, email me, or air drop it at my house (last option expensive, not recommended)

"1st Study of Charleston and Dolphins"
5.5" x 10.5"

If you'd like to purchase this original, or buy a print, just click on one of the pictures.

Hi Rachel, wow, awesome painting. I like them more, personally, as individual little paintings like you've shown the sections separately. The full one is beautifully done but too busy for my tastes.

Wow, that is a lot of detail but beautifully done. My suggestion is "A Dolphin's View of Charleston"
