North Light House Original Watercolor Painting

  North Lighthouse, Block Island   original watercolor painting is 18 X 24 inches.  This is a different sky than a previous painting I did of this same spot.  The photo is brighter on the bottom left than it should be because of the artificial lighting.  I've been doing skies all week after watching Johannes Vloothuis webinar.  Lots of good information.  :) "Only dead fish swim with the stream." --Anonymous 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.

Sunset on the Beach Watercolor Painting

 Sunset on the Beach watercolor painting is 10.5 x 14.5 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.   I watched a webinar by Johannes Vioothuis   at Wet Canvas Live sponsored by F & W Media of Artists Magazine.  The third and final one is next Saturday.   After watching the classes I looked at my original painting (posted below--Sunset at the Beach).  I washed that painting out (it is gone!) and repainted but the result was too muddy and overworked so I started over again with a fresh sheet of paper.  This came out the best of the three.  :-) Do it no matter what. If you believe in it, it is something very honorable. If somebody around  you or your family does not understand it, then that's their problem. But if you do have a passion, an honest passion, just do it.

Bird in a Tree Original Watercolor Painting

Bird in a Tree watercolor painting is 7 x 10 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.  I had a lot of fun doing this one--I think I like all the lines and blotches of colors - almost like an abstract.   I also love my new paints!   Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.

Flowers on the Fence Original Watercolor Painting

Mandevilla Vine Watercolor Painting

Mandevilla Vine watercolor painting is 12 x 13 inches on Arches 140 pound paper. This is from one of my photos of one of three plants that I had on my patio during the summer.   Unfortunately, they were too big to bring inside for winter.... Every winter, When the great sun has turned his face away, The earth goes down into a vale of grief, And fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables, Leaving her wedding-garlands to decay - Then leaps in spring to his returning kisses. ~Charles Kingsley   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.

Gold and Silver Fish Watercolor Painting

 Gold and Silver Fish watercolor painting, photo reference from Wet Canvas weekend drawing event.   I used a silver/blue iridescent paint on the back ground, which you really can't see in the photo of the artwork, and which is very subtle even looking at the artwork.   "Earth has no sorrow that  heaven cannot heal."
