A Song Among the Reeds – Cherie Giddens
A Song Among the Reeds
Framed 36 x 26
34 x 14
I wanted to capture the feeling of riding the breeze over the river in a row boat. I uses the long vertical format to emphasize the effect of the river’s current. The cool water and green grass and trees were always a summer’s delight.
Quiet Winter Shadows
Framed 32 x 40
Nothing seems to reflect light and shadow better than snow. While painting this winter scene I played with the glow of sunlight that creates color in the white of the tree trunks and the snow revealing the reds, yellows and blues everywhere.
Pretty N Pink
Framed 32 x 41
Transparent Watercolor & Acrylic
Watercolor is the perfect medium to paint the delicate and soft look of the peony bloom. Using watercolor for the blooms and acrylic for the foliage made a great contrast to accent the firm leaves against the flower’s “Pretty N Pink” blooms.
