Darren's Winter Farm


I finished this yesterday as one of the lessons for the Monday night watercolor class at Riverside Art Center In Wapakoneta, Ohio.  This is another painting from a photograph by The Photography Guy Photos by Darren Fisher.  You can find him on Facebook - his work is awesome.  Thank you, Darren!

This painting is approximately 9" x 12" and is painted on Aquarello 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper, another new paper I have been trying out.  In some ways, I love it, and in others it is giving me some grief!  The paint lies on the top sometimes and then, when I don't expect it, it soaks into the paper and can't be lifted at all...go figure.  I bought 10 sheets, have 9 left, so I had better get used to it quickly!

I can almost smell the cold of this one. Like that the snowy ground mimics the sky colors too. Lovely painting, Barb.

Thank you so much, Sherry! I think it looks cold, too! Unfortunately, I don't really like cold!

I love the strong diagonals in this, Barb, that lead my eye right to that open doorway on the barn and then those luscious colors of red and orange. A truly beautiful watercolor!
