Equestrian Statue

If I was in Europe, this is the kind of thing I might like to stop and draw.

watercolor fruit from MI

I just returned from a trip to Michigan, and did this watercolor while there of a lime and cherries.
I suppose this would qualify as my first "real" watercolor, as there's no pen or anything else (other than the pencil lay-in). This is also my first attempt at using masking fluid (for the highlights).
