Cove Grange

Watercolor on paper, 4 1/2" x 8"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.
SOLD


Today's painting is for those of you who may be growing just a little weary of winter by now. Take heart, spring is on the way!

I love the simplicity of the old grange halls that dot the rural countryside. I've studied this one for years and finally got around to painting it.

This painting is noticeably "summer-like" compared to the two previous posts.

The greens are so green it's wonderful.

I do see that brown/blue combination still happening in the background though. LOL

The thing I wanted to comment on the most was the detail. For being such a small painting you packed quite a bit of detail into the trees, grass, and the building in the middle-ground.

Really good job with that!

I have a hard time believing how well you paint all these scenes. They look so very natural. This is a beauty.

Don,
I love this piece...one can almost feel the grass. This painting feels like a nice summer day.
