"Autumn Park" (watercolor on paper, 12" x 9")


"Autumn Park" (watercolor, 12" x 9")


This is a park in my neighborhood where I take a daily walk. This is where I go to commune with nature, to watch the seasons change and observe nuanced colors in different weathers. On a sunny autumn afternoon, the trees were casting beautiful shadows on the path.

Dappled light is the spotted light which comes through gaps in a tree canopy and produces the feeling of light and the airy, cheerful mood in a landscape and cityscape. I am teaching a in-studio workshop at the Art League School in Alexandria, VA on December 4 and 5, 2021.  We are going to create these happy paintings together through the mastery of edges, greens, and shadow colors!
