I did this painting last month in the Salminen workshop at Cannon Beach. We had done the abstract project for the first three days and the last day and a half we were to work in our usual (more realistic) style but use the ideas from the beginning of the week. I had the painting drawn on the paper Friday morning and had even started painting when J.Salminen did his demonstration on reflections. The process is described in detail in his second video, Urban Landscape in Watercolor. As you can see, as a result of that demo on tail light reflections, I was able to transfer some of what he did to my table top reflections. You never know what, when, or how you are going to use information from workshops. This was immediately gratifying.
