New England Fishing Village

I finished this painting this evening.  I cropped the scene from a large photograph and just zeroed in on the boat and the grey building.  The things I like best about this painting are the colors. The painting is 11" x 8 1/2" and is painted on Canson's 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.

I plan to use this as the painting for the class at Riverside Art Center this coming week.

Barb I loved how you captured this scene. Your mastery of watercolors is what I hope to achieve someday.

Thanks so much, Susan.

I fell last Wednesday and lacerated my knee (6inches) (28 stitches) and sprained muscles below my knee. Needless to say, I will not be painting in my studio for a while since it is in the basement. Hopefully I will heal fast.
