I have new, heavy watercolor paper out, and I am beginning the large painting of the medina in Casablanca. It is the old medina, and it is quite typical of the medinas I visited throughout Morocco. I am captured by the scene I hope to paint because the woman I photographed seemed happy. That was a little rare in my experience wandering the narrow alleyways of medinas, so I am thankful to have captured her smile. I have many other people to add, but I worked carefully on the flow of these three people in the development of the drawing.
