Painting a snow scene in watercolor allows me to make use of the white paper and transparent qualities of the medium. The glazed edges makes the scene pop.
This scene can still be found in the mountains of New Mexico. I used the local color of the adobe walls and tin roofs with a separate painting behind it in sepia tones to emphasize the village’s heritage of worship.
“I spent my childhood visiting beaches along Padre Island in the Gulf of Mexico. I always thought of the sea gulls as beachcombers along with myself, my sisters and cousins who combed the beaches with me. When painting this scene of waves upon the shore, which are also known as “beachcombers”, I included the sea gull in memory of those wonderful days at the beach.”
