Harbor in Nova Scotia

Well, I have taken a week off from painting to renew and refresh my muses.  I got back to painting this weekend and finished this watercolor of a harbor in Nova Scotia.  It is from a photo by photographer Garry Black (www.garryblack.com), with his permission, of course.

This painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.  I am planning to use this for my intermediate watercolor class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio, which starts again next Monday evening, the 13th.   I am certain they will enjoy this one.
