This original watercolor painting is 8.5″ x 11.5″,” and comes beautifully double matted and framed in white.
All of my original paintings include a certificate of authenticity with the painting.
When I paint in watercolor, I like to start out with an outdoor session to capture a scene, pulling in the design and composition of my subject, and getting a color study where I capture the colors and how the light and shadow play with one another. In some cases, such as with this painting, I combined the approach with a visit to the location to get my color palette down with the overcast weather of the day. I also used old family photos and memories. I start with a light sketch to capture the composition, then lay in lights to begin the process of homing in on color, light, and shadow. In this painting, I then completed the darker tones in the trees to ensure the rest of the painting balanced with contract and value.
This is an original watercolor painting of a local favorite spot in East Boothbay Maine during the time I grew up. For a time, there were three spruce trees at the southwestern tip of Ocean Point which overlook’s Card’s Ledge and Ram Island Lighthouse. Even after one of the trees fell, and after another was struck by lightning, folks who live there still refer to it as “three Trees”, and it is a beautiful, peaceful spot to look out over the water.
Thanks so much for your interest! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to assist you.
