"Irish Coffee Shop"
8 1/2 x 11 watercolor $85
While in N. Ireland, we went to Greyabbey and there is a gorgeous courtyard with shops on either side, huge amounts of beautiful flowers and plants, so this is the coffee shop there. I took photos galore, as there is subject matter for a huge amount of paintings. The bike was from a photo I took in Donaghadee in front of a florist, so I combined parts of different photos. I am trying to get more value and contrast in my watercolors and more pure and non-muddy colors. I think this one was successful and love the play of shadows and the colors in the flowers.
