Detroit Mist

This month's virtual paintout takes us to the city of Detroit. Since it is a city with deep financial woes, I expected it to be an impoverished, boarded up, graffiti plagued wasteland, but I found it lovely, for the most part. I've been hungry for texture in my paintings lately so tried a combo of watercolor and gouache to depict this atmospheric scene.


  1. And texture was the very first thing I noticed, Janell. This is a beautiful and very impressionistic piece.

  2. Exactly what I was going for! Thank you!
