It's been a while since I got out the watercolors to make a painting. Have I missed painting with watercolors? Probably a little. There is something so satisfying about watching wet pigment spread and mix on the paper's surface. Yet it's a daring adventure too, bordering in the edge of chaos, as you never really know exactly what you'll get. Last week's delightful visit to a nearby farm inspired me to get out my watercolor palette and load up my brushes once again.
While at the farm we met the animals.
And enjoyed the enchanting view from their front porch, which was the inspiration for my painting above. All in all, it was a wonderful way to spend an early spring afternoon here in our Southern mountains.
