"Pride of the Susquehanna"

"Pride of the Susquehanna"
Watercolor on 300lb. Cold pressed paper

Plein Air Camp Hill.  
This is my submission for the week long competition.   There was some heavy rain on Wednesday. (Not good for watercolors). I painted the riverboat Thursday morning.  There were some big puddles left that I wanted to take advantage of.  This is on City Island, Harrisburg, PA. 
 Later this morning I will be competing in the Quick Draw event.  I'm still trying to decide what to paint for that!
