Front yard

I often think of my teacher Ed Whitney, who I have mentioned many times before in these posts. His words came to mind today when I was painting the red door. He always taught us to put a little bit of a strong colour somewhere else in the painting, for balance. Luckily there was some red foliage at the front of the house and a bit behind the chimney.

  1. Just stopping in to see your blog. Great work! I had a watercolor teacher who used to say, “a little of this and a lot of that.”

    • Hi Bernadette. Glad you could stop by. I like what your teacher said and some of those things that my great teachers have said have really remained with me. Who was that teacher?
