2010 Winter Series #18

6"x 4" Original Watercolor

A Lancaster County farm scene in
snow.

This week is getting away from me! I was
able to finish the larger painting (below) over
the weekend at the show. But the past few
days Linda had a "honey do list" that went on
forever! We finally purchased a new bed
which somehow turned into clean out the
whole bedroom... I taught two classes and I
had a track meeting. Track starts Monday,
which makes concentrating on painting a
bit harder.
Below is my latest larger painting.
I was focused on the greens, I wanted
them to look real which required painting
each needle then pushing darker color
between. This is another New Castle, DE
window.
Untitled but open to suggestions... 16"x 12"

Wow, Andy! Love the painting of the house and the paper's texture just adds so much to this piece. A truth in one of my lessons that I recently had in how much the paper can lend to the composition. I really love the one you finished while at your show. I honestly did think it was a photograph because of those evergreens. Your efforts were quite successful. I also love those old fashioned working shutters! Exquisite!! Let's see...title suggestion..."Shuttered Greens"...?
