Day 18: 30 Paintings in 30 Days!
"Colors of Fall" $99
11" x 14" image watercolor
Today, I chose a simple lake scene that is very much like the view from our house! I'm trying to paint several paintings ahead so that I will be able to enjoy our son and daughter in law's visit when they come in 2 more days. This paper was wet on both sides as to allow me to work wet into wet for a long period of time. I even painted the foreground tree when the paper was still damp so that it would be very slightly out of focus. MN lakes are so beautiful, and we Minnesotans are very proud of our 10, 000 lakes!
