This was a lunchtime plus a few breaks watercolor experiment. Why experiment, to keep it loose and have the light wipe out completely some of the objects. I have never painted a watercolor similar to this and wanted to do it with some speed and not over do it. I’m fairly happy with the results, but I haven’t mastered the color combinations like some of my wonderful blog friends.
I have named this painting “Cottonwood Flies” because of the floating white spots representing cottonwood balls. In Indiana these little fuzzy balls float around in the air as though a feather or a light snowflake and then swirl around on the ground as though dancing with the wind. The beautiful old house is a house similar to the place where I went turkey hunting this weekend, I know your getting tired of old things, but I have such wonderful memories and wonder about these places. I love to explore the insides of them and find old toys, news papers and any other item that peek my interest. Anyway, some of you experienced landscapers and artist drop me some hints on colors to use and avoid… I need the help! Thanks
