Coat of Many Colors – Daily Painting

“Coat of Many Colors” – 7.5″ x 11″ watercolor on paper – Available

Out in the meadow that borders the northern part of the arroyo, there stood a willowy creature, pondering what she would wear. Shall it be the gold today? The yellow? The pale chartreuse? I’m done with the dark green … it’s SO last week. Perhaps the rust?

As storm winds rose, her garment slowly came undone, and I knew before long all her glory would lay at her feet.

    I love the bright, breezy feeling of this painting. Something about the colors and the way everything is listing to the left. There is a great energy to it.

    What a great piece, Karen. I love the clouds and the complexity of the foliage.

    Did you use masking fluid to keep the trunks white?

    This is beautiful — it feels so free — I can feel the wind
