Blooms at Breckenridge House

Blooms at Breckenridge House – Watercolor on Arches 140# CP – 9″ x 12″

In search of a building to interpret in watercolor, I ventured over to Midway Village.  I walked the grounds and decided to take on the Breckenridge House. I embraced the challenge of the flowers. To interpret each planting. To instill unity and yet successfully elude to and instill depth to the scene.

While I painted, a few of the volunteers worked tending to the flower beds. I opted not to include the workers in the scene. I was in a hurry and the many options for placement of the workers required more than I wanted to invest. Before I finished the painting, a couple of the gardeners came over to check out my work. One was put out that I did not include the whole house. Funny look on her face when I responded that I found the product of their efforts to be of more interest.
