Window on the Pacific II, Watercolor Painting by Jenny Armitage

Window on the Pacific II (watercolor 12 x 17) available

I liked the first version of this painting so much that I’ve done it again.  This version is watercolor only with no gouache.  It’s also reversed right to left and cropped a little differently.  I’m not sure which version I like best.  The first version is here: https://dancingfeatherstudio.com/blog/2022/12/22/windowonthepacific/

Postcard Paintings I Did at the Fair

Mommy and the Waves (5 x 7) SOLD

Before demonstrating watercolor at the fair, I asked various other painters for advice. The message I heard loud and clear was never try to start or put the finishing touches on a painting while talking to the public. That’s good advice and I took it. But I found spending five days painting the middles of paintings unsatisfying and vaguely unsettling. So I also painted some little postcard sized paintings from start to finish too. Yesterday’s postcard sized painting was one of those. Here’s another one.

I think I took the reference photos on Lincoln City Beach, but it could be anywhere. What matters about this image is sun and sparkle contrasting with cool water. Also, I just love the way both mommy and daughter appear just a hair afraid of the waves, but they are right at the edge anyway.

I used phthalo blue, burnt sienna, yellow ochre and added little quinacridone deep red rose for the figures. The “sparkle” is reserved white created by splattering the page with liquid mask. I didn’t have a toothbrush to splatter with so I used a stiff filbert brush.
