Washington Park

There are still paintings from my summer travels that haven’t been painted. Places I saw that I didn’t have time to paint because I was teaching or driving or it was just too late in the day and the light was fading. Washington Park in Anacortes was one of those places. It had the same impossibly tall pines that I looked at every morning from my cabin. Painted on 300 lb Fabriano cold press paper. Size: 11″ x 15″.

    My word, this is really, really good. I love the detail around the edge of the water and the choice of colour makes it so realistic. You should take this up as a hobby!

    This is gorgeous! I hope you make more trips to the PNW because I love seeing our home in your watercolors.

    Just beautiful. Aren’t you in Brazil?

    • Thanks Lee! No, I couldn’t go to Brazil because my teaching contract started last week. I think a lot of people were in the same boat as me so I hope next year the symposium will be in July again instead of end of August.

    Beautiful. I get a real sense of the volume of the rocky point, the softness of the calm water in the foreground, the nestled cabins and uncertain sky. Stunning!
