Lovers come and go.  Good buddies are forever.

Two Buddies in Aruba, watercolor

Watercolor, 6.75″ x 8″

Sketched first in pencil on 300 lb. Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper.  I applied the watercolor washes using both wet in wet techniques and glazing.  Working out the pattern of values in earlier sketches helped keep the color clean.  Fewer layers of glazing were required to achieve the illusion of form and design.
