Farm in the Swale

Watercolor on archival rag paper, 5" x 7"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.
SOLD

(The buyer backed out, so I am re-listing this nice little watercolor I posted in May, along with the original text:)

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.


Here's the current state of the mural. It should be complete in another day or two. Click image to enlarge:

Beautiful watercolor Don somehow it makes me think of Andrew Wyeth!

Gosh I can't believe how fast this mural is coming along and so beautifully! I haven't commented on it because I haven't had a chance to read from the beginning...

Wow! Awesome painting!

Thanks, Erika! Wyeth was my idol when I was a young painter, so his influence still shows up in some of my paintings.

This mural is fun, as it is not too big, and great to work on in the comfort of my studio, instead of 20 feet up on scaffold on a busy street. Also the subject matter is of my own choosing, which is rare for a commission.
