All Overgrowth is Comic

The finished painting! A late September scene from Wave Hill in The Bronx, New York City

I am going to be brief and wish everyone a good weekend. I am going out to celebrate now that this painting is finished! Next up: sealing and varnishing the Aquabord surface. Test boards were sprayed outside this morning with Krylon UV archival varnish, and then I’ll apply a test coat of Golden Polymer Varnish, satin finish. Proceeding cautiously, reading labels, following directions.

But happy to be done.

    This is absolutely incredible. Honestly, I feel foolish as I’d just be gushing over this… but my god. The reflections in the water are fantastic. The ripples… everything. You know how sometimes a painting has just one little spot that captures your eye (a spot of light reflecting off a vase, for instance)? This entire painting seems like this to me. Just mesmerising. And to top it all off, it’s a WATERCOLOUR! Brilliant. I envy your talent, truly! 🙂 Congratulations on a wonderful piece.

      A bit at a loss for words here, Pauline, but please accept my gratitude for your kind words about this painting. It is a labor of love, and I enjoyed working on it and feel a bit of a loss…need to move on to the next painting. Think it will be a sunset sky with lots of warm colors to balance all the greens in this one!

  3. “But happy to be done.” I would be happy also if I had done this outstanding painting. The combination of the elements of the pond, the structure of the planter and reflective nature catching that which cannot be seen all work together to make a realistic setting.
