Most of the time when I sit down with watercolor paper and my super excellent iridescent watercolor paints, things just happen. I’ve got no plan other than to put some color on the paper. Having experienced my share of foggy, misty mornings, I’d have to say that’s where this painting came from. Oh, not that any of those foggy, misty mornings were this color! And the majority of those foggy, misty mornings involved automobiles, buses, people and various animals creeping through the fog.
Misty Morning is today’s addition to my Etsy store, where a series of my 4″ x 6″ (Original Small Works of Art™) watercolor paintings are on sale for $15 each (with free shipping to US locations).
Looks Mark Rothkoish.
Like the colors.
I’m a retired art teacher.
Hi Brother Mark! Being compared to Rothko in even a small way is a heady thing. I like his art, although when it comes to abstracts that continually catch my eye, I keep going back to Picasso and his cubism. It’s all so funky in a mesmerizing way.
I don’t have much of an art background… I spent lots of time at the Art Institute in Chicago as a child, and I know what I like. I read about artists whose work I find interesting, and one of these days I’ll actually take some art history classes. In the meantime, I’ll continue to just paint from my heart.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again.
I LOVE the colors. I wish all of our East TN foggy mornings were that color! It’s a beautiful work.
Yes, wouldn’t it be great if foggy days were more colorful? My theory is that it would lead to a world of happier people.
