I like this very much David especially the iron on the building. We call it corrugated iron - same over there?

Essential and well rendered. A "silent", but very eloquent artwork.

David, a nicely rendered WC and the rusty barn is a little different I like your sky and see the watercolor paper. I love watercolors and painted them for many, many years before getting into digital work. :cool::cool::cool::):)

Thanks all...

Caesar.. Yes.. it's very serene..

Pat - The barn was my favorite part of painting this... The road and right side were my least favorite

GXH - Yes.. I love painting the skies on AR.. I put them in.. then zoom in and just stare at the textures a while. I think that's why I love watercolor so much!

This is very nice. I like the color palette very much...Curious to know if this is a traditional watercolor class you are taking or digital? And if traditional, what the instructor thinks of your digital watercolor.

It's a traditional class.. and I was on the fence about whether to put it up or not.. but I finally caved. He didn't respond yet.. LOL!

Love it. I usually don't like paper/canvas texture because it might conflict with printing out onto something else with a tooth like in the case of a giclee. But this broad watercolor paper 'tooth' is perfect with what you painted. And the palette is sort of Andrew Wyeth-esque regional (overcast natural exterior rural light) -- although the terrain could easily be California, where we do get overcast skies as well. This is a very good painting. Well done. Would look great on the wall.

I concur with the Wyeth flavour DAkey pointed out! :eek::cool:;):D:D:D:D:D Right! That's what I vaguely felt and was missing.
I'm not sure it's California though, not even a little fire around .... :o;)LOL

Really like this style of painting and it's a style I try to do most of. Great to see another officiando of this artwork. Fantastic painting in my opinion...

The water mark is a bit distracting but I understand. At any rate it is a beautiful painting.

I understand about the watermark.. wish there was a way to do without it.. but being that I sell my paintings.. and giclees.. I can't afford to leave full size prints up.. I could make them smaller and more pixelated.. but that's worse than the watermark..

I know how easy it is to download someone's art work. Glad you get to sell.
