100 Watercolors #13: Misfortune


Dropping your ice cream cone as a kid was the most misfortunate thing I could think of for this theme.  I tried to have some fun with the composition with this one, so that the ice cream on the pavement is the last thing you see.  Of course, only after I finished it could I see that there are WAY too many yellow dashes in the middle of the road.  I might as well have made it a solid yellow line!  Oh well, I guess my hopes of a perfect painting were dashed in the street...  (Pun intended!)

Next week's theme: Smile!
