Watercolor on archival rag paper

The seasonal struggle is on. Soft clouds drift like swirling shrouds over the whitened hilltops. On the mountain's flanks, threatening fingers of snow point downward, as if reminding us that winter can still hold sway. Slow motion flurries ghost across the valley, large flakes melting silently into the wet ground.

Majestic. Just beautiful. This painting reminds me to be still and breathe deeply.

Wonderful how watercolor lends to the atmosphere of the weather. Beautiful Don.

Hi Martha--I'm grateful for your encouragement. I'm really enjoying following the process of your "Altared Self" work.

Thank you Micah.

Certain subjects seem to cry out for a certain media, and this one said watercolor. Thanks, Katherine.

Don...your description sounds like a beautiful poem. An artist once told me to think of describing words, adjectives about the scene , even write an Hakui about it, before painting, You seem to do that. Barb

Don Gray said...

Thanks for your perceptions, Barb. Sometimes writing helps me unlock how I relate to a subject. Hopefully it can do that for others as well, though I often think I'm jabbering too much!

Don, I really like this one!

But how did you get that cool fog effect using just watercolors?

That's the neatest part!

Good ol' wet-in-wet washes, Dean. Thanks for the comment.
