Here are the Honorable Mention awards from the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society summer show at The Barn in Mariemont:

Eat Your Veggies

by Claudia Taylor

Bold and bright and ripe for the summer!

The Admirer

by Venetia Wang

Ventia is a fairly new member and has a very delicate touch with watercolor.


At the End of a Long Day

by Lydia Rittinger

All of these were smaller paintings,
all horizontal.  Although the bottom painting info just said "watercolor", I'm pretty sure it's a batik without the ink added at the end.

Note Bene:  According to the GCWS blog, there were 2 other Honorable Mention paintings, but I did not see them when I was there so maybe they had sold and been taken off the walls already?  So...Honorable Mention ribbons also went to Carol Steuer (who did sell a painting) and Carole McAfee (our show chairperson).

I didn't even know you could use watercolour for batik work until a few weeks ago, I like the look of it and keep meaning to try it out

I like all three of them Rhonda :)
But my favourite is that cute and
delicate kitten :))

Have a beautiful Sunday!

Debbie Nolan said...

Oh Rhonda - all three paintings are super but love the one with the kitty and butterfly. Her touch is so soft and beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Hope you are having a great week-end. Hugs!

Hi Rhonda, thanks for sharing I have enjoyed looking at these paintings. Each one is very different to the other. said...

Thanks for sharing some of the winners. (I still think yours is a winner!)

Glad you all enjoyed seeing the other winners since you can't come and see the show in
person :)
