Dark Water

Watercolor on archival paper 5" x 7"
$125.00 + $6.00 shipping in US.
SOLD

Back to landscape today. I took a drive and then a walk along Catherine Creek yesterday--such a beautiful little stream. In the early evening light the water against the stark snow looked like iridescent black ink.

Clicking the image will bring up a larger-than-life view.

Hi Triecia, thanks for your observation, I sense that too. In winter even the most unassuming little streams can appear to be deep, mysterious pools.
