CALM WATER




Mostly Daniel Smith Lunar Black with touches of Perylene Green and some Goethite Brown Ochre.





A nice small (11 x 15 inches) painting on Fabriano Artistico 140# coldpress paper.





Wishing you safe travels, happy times with family, and help with the dishes this Thanksgiving (for those in the U.S.).  Wishing all those not in the U.S. the same, just without the turkey, cranberries and pumpkin pie!

Very nice - simple but elegant!

Turkey, cranberries and pumpkin pie sound almost as nice as your painting but I think the painting is better! Best wishes.

Beautiful and so tranquil Rhonda - perfect timing for the madness that accompanies Christmas. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and still have great left-overs to keep you from cooking the rest of the weekend. Hugs!

Thanks, Jennifer Rose and Debbie. Glad you like this one. Simple, yes, but not easy to get this simple! ha ha It's so easy to put in too much when doing watercolor (at least, for me, it is).

I love this painting Rhonda, it evokes a feeling of quiet and peace, beautifully painted.

Hi there Rhonda... A belated visit and response but a welcome return to find such a well thought out and executed gem.

The piece certainly dovetails perfectly with its title. As well, it has a hint of an oriental flavor with its minimalism of form and color.

Peaceful to look at and to quietly contemplate.

Good painting,
Warmest regards,
Bruce

So lovely and tranquil, and such an interesting triad of colors

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks, Laura. I do like the black, which flows across the paper and granulates, separates, creates interesting texture without doing more than adding water :). Hope you are doing well!
