Happy New Year 2014! I hope you are all staying warm in this chilly weather, wherever you may be. I just finished this watercolor, 29″ x 21″, titled ‘Morning After the Snow’. It was ‘magic’ for a very short time in the South. The painting was a big challenge as it needed LOTS of negative painting to ‘save those whites’. You do not use white in watercolor, but save the white of the paper and must paint the negative space behind it. Once you lose them, you also lose the freshness of the white paper.
