Fish Creek Cottage

Fish Creek Cottage – Watercolor on Arches 140# CP – 12″ x 16″

In need for a subject to paint in watercolor, I decided to revisit a design worked in oil paints a couple years ago. It is a challenge to move from oils to watercolor or vice-versa. The need for good planning is magnified with watercolors. Critical to preserve the whites as long as possible. Vital to intensify the initial applications of paint to minimize the chance of mud invading the painting.

On another note, I decided to clean out some inferior works from the studio. Nearly forty paintings on panels and almost two dozen paintings on stretchers bit the dust. Fresh canvas attached to the stretchers and many of the panels recycled to be used in the future, hopefully to more successful results.
