The Colossus, Painting of the Colosseum by Jenny Armitage

The Colossus (12 x 15 watercolor) SOLD

This building needs no introduction.  If there is a ruin that everyone recognizes, it is  Roman Colosseum.  Even in ruins, it is an impressive building. It dominates the horizon, larger even than you expect to be.

This painting has sold, but you may still purchase a fine art print.

Ladder to the Past

Ladder to the Past (10 x 15) $75

Ladder to the Past (10 x 15) $75

After painting four very wet paintings working mostly wet on dry, I just completed a very dry painting working mostly wet on wet.

This is Bandelier National Monument, New Mexico. For those of you who don’t know of it, Bandelier is a kind of pocket sized Mesa Verde located not far from Santa Fe. The major cliff dwellings can be seen in a half day self guided walking tour.

I took the photos for this painting a couple summers ago while visiting my father. The slender young women reaching the top of the ladder is my niece. She and my daughters climbed every ladder and explored every dwelling. Besides the fun of climbing the dwellings interiors are a cool contrast to the hot dry trail.

The palette is burnt sienna, cobalt blue, phthalo blue and yellow ocher.
