6"x 4" Miniature Original Watercolor

Another landscape from The Wilds in Ohio. The views were
stunning and could be from anywhere. I am enjoying painting
these landscapes while they are fresh in my mind. An added
bonus is my own change in landscape, I have taken over the table
in our friends kitchen with my paints and supplies spread out over
the whole table. We had rain at the show so today I am drying my
tent and rub so not only are my paints on the table I have stuff all
over their driveway and wet towels over the deck! It's looking
like we moved in!
I received an "Award of Excellence" at the Shaker Heights show
this past weekend. It came with a check which is always nice!
My goal is to join the other accomplished artists in the "Painting A Day" arena. I am expecting this endeavor to sharpen my painting skills and to help me grow as a watercolorist. I already paint full time and exhibit at art shows but I am hoping this experience will allow me to explore subjects I would not normally choose to paint. I hope you enjoy taking this journey with me. Andy Smith
ABOUT THE PAINTINGS:
Each watercolor is painted on Arches 300lb Cold Press paper. I use transparent watercolors occasionally adding ink to the wash. I paint in a series of washes to build color, creating shadows and a strong use of light.
The PAINTING A DAY paintings started January 1, 2007.
Variations in monitor settings plus my camera skills may not exactly duplicate the actual colors in the painting. I do my best!
I plan to work in two sizes.
An image of 5"x5" with a 1/2" border or
an image of 4"x6" with a 1/2" border.
You will need to take your new painting to a frame shop to be framed. For shipping, each miniature original watercolor will be placed in a protective sleeve with a foamcore back.
The new paintings will be posted for sale via Ebay. Paintings that do not sell at auction are then placed on my show stand at a price commensurate to my other work.
