There's nothing quite like New England in Autumn, with it's blazing colors and blue, blue skies. This lakeside painting could be many places in the northeast--hope it reminds you of a beautiful lake near you!
This piece is approx. 10" high by 14" wide and painted on Arches 300# watercolor paper with Winsor & Newton watercolors.
This watercolor painting is done in a vignette style with all edges of the paper being touched, but in varying amounts. It is a very loose and free painting, with lots of sketched in leaves left unpainted. Even the peaches have a soft, fuzzy look, with little detail. It was done very quickly and I liked the immediacy of it. It's approx. 15.5" high and 9.5" wide. Hope you enjoy this one!
Garden Niche II is an oil painting from a beautiful spot in Sarlat, France, in the Dordogne Valley. It was a lovely sunny morning and breakfast was being served on the terrace of our bed and breakfast. I loved the shadows on the clay pot and the texture of the stone of this very old structure. The flowers were a bright spot of color set against the neutral stones. This is painted on a 10" x 10" canvas.
This painting is very different for me, but I have to say I really enjoyed the challenge. I was taking a wonderful watercolor class and this was the subject. I loved the grace of the swan and the reflections in the water were really interesting to paint. Hope you enjoy this piece--it's painted on 300# Arches watercolor paper with transparent watercolors. I'ts roughly 1/4 sheet, about 14" wide by 10" high.
