Cool Summer Watercolors
Baby, it's HOT outside, and that's true for much of North America right now. Here on the North Carolina coast we've been running mid-90s into the triple digits, with icky sticky humidity to boot. So to cool things off a little, I thought I post some summery watercolors, some of them watery in their own right. Hope you enjoy them!
|"Wading In," which I painted several years ago. This little dog has the right idea on a hot day, I'd say! 10 x 14. .|
Summer flowers and foliage may not cool us off, but they do lift most people's spirits. "Canna," left, 16 x 20, and "Cadmium and Impatiens" right, 11 x 16.
Mallard drakes seems to get all the attention because of their beautiful emerald heads, but I find the coloring of the hens more complex and beautiful. This is "Just Ducky," 16 x 20.
I hope this little stroll through a summery group of watercolors provided a little heat relief. I think I'll go paint now!
