" Cottage by the Sea"
10 x 14 watercolor on Arches paper $120
This was painted plein air in County Down, N. Ireland. There were two very old cottages open to the public and our painting group painted there all day, enjoying an ever-changing sky and actually a very pleasant cool and dry day! The wall at the bottom presented a problem as it was made of rocks but I opted to make it just a textured wall using a dry brush technique, avoiding a bit of confusion by all the rocks.
There were 20 artists in our group. Grahame Booth , our instructor, would demonstrate and do a quick painting before we began to paint. Here is a picture of him demonstrating and giving us some very good information.
