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!

St. James on 10 Plein air Watercolors by Bertie Brown

St. James on 10
original plein air watercolor landscape, St James Lutheran Church: 9" x 12"

Plein Air Posers
Sophie and I 
Are painting plein air 
Under bright sunny skies
On a day so fair
Our subject awaits
While we set up paints
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!
