Methods and Madness

Sometimes I paint fast and loose

Other times quite controlled

The subject decides the method

But each work has the same goal:

A painting that is successful

And beautiful to behold!

Com-posers Series Impressionistic Watercolor Floral/ Sunflowers by Pennsylvania Daily Painter Bertie Brown


giclee print/Sunflowers: 18"w x 14"h

Plein Air Posers

Sophie and I

Are painting plein air

Under bright sunny skies

On a day so fair

Our sunflowers primp and preen

While we apply the sunscreen

Then get right to work

As we quench our paper’s thirst

With lots of water, that’s our technic

‘Cause happy accidents are what we seek!

Bleeding colors, water marks

Lights contrasting with darkest darks...

Working quickly, we’re in a hurry

(We try not to worry

Will this be a keeper

Or one we will bury?)

Well, Sophie girl

What do you think

She nodded and smiled

And gave me a wink!
