MORNING VISIT TO GRAMPA
This is a large (24x28 inch) watercolor painting. It includes several of my favorite subjects like barns, tractors and Volkswagen bus. I just finished up a teaching session and while doing a demonstration, I thought of this composition. The light is from the left casting shadows so it could be morning. The sky is a warm yellow and the painting is warm. The gradated wash of the sky gives a depth to the distance. I like the composition and the story. I am reminded of a rural location in Northern California or Oregon.
