A Little Street Noise

I took this photo several months ago down in New Orleans.
I love the passion that this musician has...she is so "into" her
performance.  The audience loved her, and there were smiles all
around.  I knew I wanted to try to do something with it.
So I started it in watercolor, laying in a wet into wet wash in the
background.  I decided to use the opposite colors of yellow and purple,
since they are compliments.  When I took a workshop with Stephen Quiller,
he made us do a painting with only two colors, and all the variations
you could make with them. I plan to try that with this one...we'll see where it
goes from here!
