Santa Ana Fountain

"Santa Ana Fountain"
watercolor (12" x 9'')

Today's painting is a re-work of an older piece. 
I have been doing a little housekeeping in the studio,
this is the time when old paintings float up to surface....
and then the choice becomes... do I dump, play or salvage the painting?
For this one, I cropped it down from a 12" x 16" 
(the whole right side wasn't working for me) to the current size of 12" x 9".  
Then I punched some colors into the umbrellas, 
and played up the colors in the fountain structure. 
And I think I played a bit with the shadow area in front of the fountain.
Well...now I think I can live with this one.
