I don’t usually pick favorites, but this painting stands out to me as one of the best ones I’ve done lately. There’s just something about it that really speaks to me, a story it almost tells, like an open door into your own interpretation. I almost didn’t want to narrow the viewer’s impressions with a title, but the colors were so cold and the shapes so organic I went with Winter.
Winter, 10″x8″ watercolor on Arches cover white paper.
Above, you can see the delicate traceries and fascinating granulation within each line up close. Below, you can see the piece in a frame, which is very much my favorite way to view it. Something about cutting off that top whitespace really brings the image together for me. The creamy ivory color of the paper is also more evident in this photo than the others.
