Barn on Block Island Watercolor Painting

 Barn on Block Island watercolor painting is 10 x 14 inches and done plein air last week on Block Island, then washed out and redone from my photo.   Some of the dark areas were done with caron'dache neocolor crayons, and those did not wash out, so I was limited as to what I could re-do.  I may do this one again in my studio from my reference photo taken that day.  A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows. -- St. Francis of Assisi Please see the paintings purchasing information for some general information about pricing, or email me at bunnygriffeth@gmail.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Scenes from Block Island

 Trees on a Hill is about 7 x 11 inches.   This is from our week of plein air painting on Block Island.   It's overwhelming after working in a studio going out where everything is moving and there is lots of information.   This particular spot is beautiful with views of the ocean, a pond below us and rolling hills and in the far distance the shoreline of the mainland, boats passing by.....     I narrowed the focus down to this stand of trees on a hill above me. Study of Tree and rock wall - moving my chair 10 degrees this was another focus for the next painting.  This is 7 x 11 inches also.  Artist Painting is another view in the same spot (8 x 8 inches) and another study of the spot, the day, the mood of that gorgeous day.     I take lots of photos to do more detailed work in the studio of the area, but it's great to paint outside and see the riot of colors that do not show up in photographs. I have more paintings done throughout the week that I will be posting over t

Zebra Butterfly 2 Watercolor Painting

Zebra Butterfly 2 Watercolor Painting is 8 x 10 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.  These are from photos taken at the Roger Williams Zoo "Flutterby" Butterfly exhibit of 2009 - some from the 2008.  I take a lot of photos - carrying my camera at all times is a priority for me - for paintings.  There were so many beautiful butterflies, as well as flowers, I was in heaven in that exhibit.   My grandson's waited patiently for a butterfly to land on them in one of their very cute butterfly chairs.   A fun exhibit I hope they bring  back to the zoo.  Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp,  but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.   ~Nathaniel Hawthorne Please see the paintings purchasing information for some general information about pricing, or email me at bunnygriffeth@gmail.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
