This is me trying out a softer more impressionistic style of watercolor. Wet into wet technique with stipple brush, spatter, spritz bottle and rock salt. I loved watching the pigments oozle (blossom) all over the paper! I wanted to get a feel of a misty autumn morning. This is a half sheet.
I needed to enter 3 artworks to be juried into Wellesley Art Society. One of these went into their Fall exhibition and I won first place!
Marblehead, MA is gorgeous. I want to paint this view! It was a perfect day 62F with barely a cloud in the sky, together with Mary Treadwell and some of her wonderful friends (who were also artists) from Salem and Rockport.
I am back painting again! 18 months hiatus remodelling house in Natick, 18 miles from centre of Boston. It is still not finished, but I am getting bored of painting cabinets and walls!)
Just figuring out how to bring all my resources to this blog. Data scattered over 3 computers and 2 different cameras. I hope I havent lost anything en route to New England.
