Lake Scene Color Study

Watercolor on paper

12" x 12"


Sometimes you fall in love with a splash of colors and you can’t put them down. These colors feel alive to me. Like summertime. Storms rolling in. Growing things. Warmth. That feeling when hot rain falls on your sun kissed face. Or when you’re out on the water, looking at far off storm clouds. I didn’t realize how much my love for boats, water and the beach would show up in what I’m creating, but it makes sense. Where you find your joy, ya know?


This piece was painted vertically instead of laying flat. Hot press paper was primed with a circle filled with 3/16" grid lines, measured and drawn by hand.
