Veranda Shadows is mostly an exercise.
I bought a lovely second hand book off Amazon the other day which is by a wonderful watercolorist in CA ..
I have long admired her work with watercolors, and love the way she leaves her whites.
As many of you know, this is a pet thing with me, I am always urging students to leave whites. It's a discipline many watercolorists forget, and the watercolor loses it's life.
Marilyn Simandle is a master of this discipline I feel.
I decided to follow her lead and just play with elements out of my own travel sketchbook, definitely inflenced by Marilyn's book as well, and came up with this painting.
This one is not for sale, as I said it is an exercise.. Look for more in the future though, and enjoy my journey with Marilyn's techniques.
Happy Painting everyone.
