Farm in the Swale

Watercolor on archival rag paper, 5" x 7"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.
Email don@dailyartwest.com for purchase

Like many of the old farmhouses in this region, this one appears to have grown in parts and pieces over time, with additions built on to the original structure as need arose. The result is a kind of "practical architecture" that has its own charm.

Don!

I love, love, love everything about this one!

The composition, the detail in the hills. So much to see.

I LOVE the lime green hint of color on the underneath part of the roof. Such an awesome little detail!

You are soooo proving my "blue and brown" theory about you wrong, Don!

Looking over your more recent paintings you now are a master of greens and browns, not just blues and browns!

Hi Dean, I appreciate your enthusiastic response. You're not going to make me self-conscious about green/brown now are you? :>{

Love the composition and tonal distribution in this one Don. You have a sense of realistic distance but at the same time I feel it could almost tip towards abstraction. Wonderful.

Don Gray said...

I really appreciate your perceptions, Sheila--good to hear from you.
