Rural New England Original Watercolor Painting - 11" x 14"

Regular price $245.00 $0.00 Unit price per

This original watercolor landscape painting created au plein air on a bright May day in central Massachusetts depicts a typical rural New England street with cottages, cobblestone walls and an abundance of greenery.

The Magic

Painted on acid-free 100% cotton paper with artist grade watercolor pigments in a freehand, loose manner with seeming ease that requires years of practice.

The Story

The plein air (outdoor) painting tradition was an outcome of artists looking for authenticity and spontaneity in their work. I love that being au plein air challenges you to complete a painting here and now, without any delay. The elements at play and the quickly changing light equally present charm and challenge. Painting outside, especially in watercolor, requires unique skills and dedication. 

It was my first time joining the Central Mass Plein Air Painters group at Green Hill Stables in Berlin, MA. The bright sunshine created dappled shadows on the path and I wanted to capture the essence of an early summer day.
