Hinton, West Virginia

We took some great photos when we were in  West Virginia last fall - this scene was one of my favorites.  This picture was taken from the other side of the New River and I zeroed in on the town which is situated between the edge of the river and the sides of the mountains.  It is a beautiful spot.  This watercolor is 12" x 9" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.

I love the contrast of the crisp buildings against the more painterly trees and mountains. Lovely work!

Can I just say, I love your work! In this piece, I like the crispness of the houses against the soft blur of the background scenery. Its wonderful.
