It's from a picture I took in Old Town Alexandria at the dock. I have a good bit of work to do on it yet, and am thinking it needs something to add some life, perhaps a person or animal somewhere. Any thoughts?

http://www.mrwatercolor.com/ His style is different than mine, but I am learning his views. I like to watch the instructions on You Tube and find they are more helpfull than anything else. Cheep Joes also has a lot of great tips, and instructions, not to mention good prices on materials. My paint is mostly Danial Smiths http://danielsmithblog.com/. This is a new medium for me and I find that I have to sort of think backwards from oil painting. In oil the picture can develop and change, even morph as I go along. With watercolor the end result must be clear before the brush hits the paper with everything planed out.
