"Farm Site, Wire Drawing #1" 7" x 10", Ink on Paper, $50
This is a farm site near my friend, Jennifer Stone's family lodge near Watertown, SD. I've had a dream of painting farm scenes with Holstein cows in the foreground for about 7 or 8 years. I decided to build up to adding the cows and start with a farm site alone to start with. My plan is to complete a painting of this scene to enter in the Transparent Watercolor Society of America Show. The hard part for me is that is has to be totally watercolor, and I've become a mixed media artist these past few years. This drawing took about 4 hours, so the idea of doing quick wire drawings is a far fetched idea, at best! Stay tuned to see the finished painting!
