Painting Small

Here's a small 5" X 7" painting that is one of a series of small paintings I'm working on.  The series may end up for sale in a gallery exhibit of small paintings from many different artists.  I've included the original sketch that was completed prior to producing the small painting.  I'm going to try and "loosen up" a bit more for the subsequent paintings in the set.  It's tough to paint loose and least it is for me.

I like the way you paint, is that a wash? Water color?

Ricky, Thanks! I do paint in watercolor. I build up lots of little washes to get to the final image. I'm still working on finding a good balance between making something look finished and also have a "loose"quality, at the same time.
