This is another loose watercolor--supposed to be quick, but they are not as easy to paint as one might think! This painting is on 140# watercolor paper and is 6 3/8" wide and 4 3/4" high. It will be come matted and on acid free foam core, ready for framing. Hope you enjoy it.
Another small, loose watercolor. Done on 140# Strathmore paper. It's good to try something different once in a while in painting, and this is much looser than my more detailed watercolors. Feels pretty good to play!
Pink Rose and Buds is a watercolor painting done in a loose, painterly manner. I often tend to paint very realistically and sometimes it's fun to just go with minimal drawing and try to capture the essence without a lot of detail. Think I might work on this concept for a while!
This small painting is done on 140# Strathmore paper and is approximately 4.25" by 5.5" before matting. Hope you enjoy this little painting.
"EMMETT" is a pastel painting, approximately 8.5 x 10". This friendly fellow came to visit up to the edge of the fence that borders our back yard and the farm behind us. He was quite good about posing and coming up with a pleasant expression. Seriously, he was a lot of fun to paint and I enjoyed working with the texture of his face and his smooth hide. This painting just sold to an animal loving buyer at a fund raising art show for the Connecticut Draft Horse Rescue, held in Deep River, Connecticut. Hope you enjoy this painting.
In the Loire Valley there is the lovely town of Azay le Rideau. This
watercolor painting depicts a typical boathouse in the village, nestled
among ancient buildings with flowers blooming everywhere. It really
does look like something out of a storybook.
Sometimes you look at a piece with a fresh eye and recently that's what I did with this painting. It was originally wider and I decided to crop it in and put more focus on the center of interest. I thought the crop took out some unnecessary information on the left and brings your eye more directly to the boat. It's now 9" wide by 8 5/8" high. Original watercolor painted on 140# Arches paper. Hope you enjoy this 2nd look!
