Watercolors Posted

I've added photographs of all of the watercolors, good and bad, from the pilgrimage.

The originals were made on one of three sizes of paper, 4x8inches/10x20cm, 6x10inches/15x25cm, or 8x10inches/20x25cm. I spent generally less than 10 or 15 minutes on each, mostly because the weather was limiting or I had no time to dawdle, but also because I get bored pretty quickly. I prefer a handful of fun watercolors to dozens, hundreds, or thousands of digital photos. Each watercolor brings to mind all of the conditions that existed while I was painting - the weather, the company, the dangers, etc. They're not meant to be beautiful works of art to be framed and hung on the wall, or even stuck on the refrigerator with a magnet, they're just for my scrapbook.

There's a story behind each one. As I get time, I'll figure out a way to incorporate the story into the slideshow.

I also went back to some of the older posts and added the appropriate watercolor.
