January Blues ii -watercolour painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"January Blues ii", watercolour, approx 12 x 16" -double matted without frame or glass

I decided to try to do a watercolour from my plein air oil painting posted here. I was keen to try to get the feeling of the late day sun, and thought watercolour would be the perfect medium to show the luminescence of the light. I gained some inspiration from Nita Engle's great watercolor book "How To Make A Watercolor Paint Itself" -but believe me, it doesn't!!!  It was fun to try a watercolour again, it has been a while.

Hi sharon -- I really like this one -- I liked the original plein air oil but this one sings, especially the sun spot upper right and the soft touches of mauve throughout, plus the blue shadows -- subtle and quite lovely!

Congratulations! That's one of the groups that I first started following a number of years ago. This is a lovely painting. Love the deep colors in the shadows.
