I have friends who live in a wonderful condo on the Chesapeake Bay in Annapolis. The view out their living room windows is a grand vista of the Severn River, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, across the Bay to Kent Island, and south into the watery distance.
I was one of a group of ladies who were invited to come and paint the view (using watercolor) in conjunction with a Bible study about bodies of water. Our challenge was to paint the scene using a single color. Here is the bridge painted in cobalt blue.
“It takes 120 bad paintings to know something about painting.” – Larry Seiler as quoted by Jeff Mahorney in his blog
Each painting is small in format and should be completed in about an hour or less.
My goals are to improve my technique, to paint faster, and to gain experience with a variety of subjects.
