Abandoned

Watercolor on 140 lb paper
12"x9"
Something new as a subject..this wooden barn looked locked and forgotten.I don't see this kind of locks around here much, so I use one of the pictures of a talented photographer Brian Mcnulty, with his permission.
Next group show lined up for coming week.I am submitting two paintings in pastels this time.Will update you all on Tuesday...Have a happy weekend!

  1. This is beautiful, and so artistically rendered. I've noticed that your palette of colors is similar in much of your work. It makes your work uniquely yours, and sets you apart from other artists. I really admire that, and I'm trying to do the same. What colors do you find that you pick up again and again in every piece you do?

  3. This is not intentional but I seem to prefer this combination! My usual colors are cobalt and ultramarine blue,alizarin crimson, gold quinacridon (a little),cadmiun orange and burnt sienna.i dont use much outside this palette unless necessary:-) I m glad you liked this piece,its a first,as far as the subject is concerned.
