12″×9″ watercolour using Cotman colours on Belfang watercolour paper

Designed and painted with my beginning watercolour students in mind. An in-class excercise on “leaving paper white.”

Buy it, I’m already well into my 60’s and if I’m going to be famous, well, I’m running out of time. I like to think my work has been influenced by the great impressionists, although my wife says it’s because I won’t go and get my eyes checked. At any rate, I do love to paint watercolour and acrylics and it’s a true wish of mine that you enjoy viewing my work. Go ahead and let me know what you think, I love to read your comments. (Well….the good ones anyway.)

    Wow it looks cold there!

  • It does indeed look too cold for any place I’d want to be, but the national weather shows they’ve been having just this kind of weather lately. Thanks Randy.

    Just right Jim! The effect of freezing cold is foremost here.. in this lovely balance lf lights and darks.

  • It turned out to be a good one for the students to paint as well Sandy. I think I sometimes challenge them too much. I enjoy seeing them have what they feel are successful works earlier on in class.

    Nice & simple yet very effective – so effective that it makes me want to go back to bed & snuggle under some blankets.

  • You aren’t still roaming around in the middle of the night with a bug are you?

  • That actually wrapped up this session with this group. I start some new classes in January. I think it was all your snow photos that put snow on the brain. lol Thanks Bob.

    Wonderful work. Br-r-r-r-r, gives a sense of the middle of winter. I especially adore the work in the sky giving the viewer the impressions that more weather is coming in.

  • Glad you noticed that sky. I was explaining to my students that it’s OK to visually bend the rules for effect. You are always so attentive to the various elements in my work Carolyn. Thank you for that.
