Steps To The Gate

I often have the urge to get out the watercolors and splash some color around.  I decided to paint the impressive wrought iron gate to the HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital in Fort Worth (originally the W. I. Cook Memorial Hospital) - an Italian Renaissance style structure built in 1929.

But first a couple of studies for practice.

A step-by-step look at the painting progression.

    1. Welcome back, Sharon. Great to hear from you!

  2. My sister worked at Cook's when it was in the building. I love seeing your process and think your work is incredible. Thanks for sharing.
