THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The liveliness of the unusual choice of pastel colors in this image make it look like it truly came straight out of fairy tale. The intricate, detailed use of watercolors in pink, purple, brown and green, along with shading and watering down in all the right places, make this piece unique and beg the question - why aren’t bright colors used more often in watercolor on paper? The colors are also unusually complementary to this simple country setting of two barns in a remote area of the woods, adding to the simple, settled yet fun composition.
