Irish Cottage, Ballyvaughan
21 x 28 Framed
Watercolor & Gouache
While on a painting trip to Ireland, I used watercolor to render this thatch roof cottage at low tide in Ballybaughn. The inlet below the wall had layers of water, stones, seaweed and grasses that create horizontal layers of color and texture, my favorite part of this painting. Again, gouache help to give emphasis to the lights.
Early Morning, Rhine River
Gallery Wrap 36 x 48″
While on a river cruise in Germany, I woke early one morning to see the amazing sunrise reflected in the boat’s wake. The grasses among the trees were bright with morning sun, while the shadows were deep along the water. This was such a peaceful and moody scene.
