LANDSCAPE #9 - NEW HARBOR, BLOCK ISLAND WATERCOLOR PAINTING

  In the depth of winter, I finally learned  that within me there lay an invincible summer.  ~Albert Camus LANDSCAPE #9 - NEW HARBOR, BLOCK ISLAND watercolor painting.   I'm learning that I have been intimidated to paint these scenes, instead of not liking to paint landscapes which is what I rationalized, so the challenge is challenging!

LANDSCAPE #6 - WINDBLOWN WATERCOLOR PAINTING

LANDSCAPE #6 - WINDBLOWN WATERCOLOR PAINTING (9 X 12).   I wasn't able to paint yesterday, so now I'm behind in the challenge.   I loved this tree which high up on a hill and exposed to the constant ocean breezes, has frozen in it's growth in a windblown pose.

LANDSCAPE #5 - OAKLAND BEACH WATERCOLOR PAINTING

LANDSCAPE #5 - OAKLAND BEACH WATERCOLOR PAINTING  (9 X 12) I love this photo reference but was intimidated to paint it.  The painting is much more realistic than the photo, actually, so I'm happy with it.   This tells a story -- the dog is looking over his shoulder, at a seagull maybe, Jaedon (in red) has found something interesting in the sand/grass, and Joshua is just treking along with frisbee in hand to the wide open area of the beach. In the distance is Newport. On really clear days you can make out the bridges from Oakland Beach. “Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot.  In your soul are infinitely precious things  that cannot be taken from you.” ― Oscar Wilde 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.

LANDSCAPE #4 - BLOCK ISLAND WATERCOLOR PAINTING

LANDSCAPE #4 - BLOCK ISLAND (9 X 12 WATERCOLOR PAINTING  If you turn to your right at this location, you see the ocean and in the distance Montauk Long Island.   No matter how slow the film, Spirit always stands still long enough for the photographer It has chosen.

LANDSCAPE #2 - BLOCK ISLAND WATERCOLOR PAINTING

LANDSCAPE #2 - BLOCK ISLAND watercolor painting (9 X 12) is going to be a 15 day challenge and I will hopefully get something done every day for 15 days, and good or bad, will post them here.   This is from one of my photo references from Block Island that I have always feared being able to get the colors right, and the reds are more burgandy than I have them, so I'm not totally pleased  with this, but it does depict the countryside there which is quiet and serene,  with the little hills and rock walls and little ponds, lakes or whatever (there's many of them there.)  Okay, and here's my quote  on challenges...... “Whoa," said Nico as he climbed off the bus. "Is that a climbing wall?" "Yeah," I (Percy) said. "Why is there lava pouring down it?" "Little extra challenge..." - Percy” ― Rick Riordan , The Titan's Curse   Please see the paintings purchasing information for some general information

EASTER FLOWER WATERCOLOR PAINTING

 EASTER FLOWER watercolor painting (8 X 12 inches) It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations 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.
