Moving Day - watercolor

watercolor, 2016
available, 11"x15"

      This was painted from a cell phone photo I took as we were moving my sister out of her house earlier this year. And, it's nice timing as we're in the process of moving my daughter into her first apartment.
      A moderate mixture of detail and looseness, I'm very happy with some spots, just "happy" with some others and I settled for a few spots. The biggest problem with this really was that it was painted on Kilimanjaro paper from Cheap Joe's. I don't care for that paper; it buckles much more than Arches and even the cheaper Moulin du Roi by Canson. The only good thing about it is the texture. The cold-pressed finish is much rougher than any other brand I've tried.


  1. all I can say is WOW ! this is amazing .happy PPF

  2. Wow, you have done amazing things with the light here. Sorry about the paper but it didn't hamper the subject. Happy PPF

  3. This is beautiful! I'm sure it will be appreciated as a memento of a day that was likley both happy & sad.
