Warm Welcome – Glendale – Karen Winters Daily Painting

March 3rd, 2008

“Warm Welcome” Approx 13″ x 10″ watercolor
SOLD

This is another in the series of paintings I’m working on for the Artists of the Canyon show at the Chevy Chase Country Club, opening March 14. I don’t paint architecture too often, but I enjoy it when I do.

This time, my objective was to remember to put color in the shadowed areas and to walk the line between looseness and accuracy. This painting might be considered a “vignette” because not every inch of paper is painted. The area I left white is in fact a gray parking lot on a hot day. It is not attractive to look at; I like this better.

With some of these shows behind me, hopefully I’ll be able to get back in the daily painting groove pretty soon. These large pieces take a lot more time to paint than the little ones.

  1. How delicate those colors are , Karen.
    The flowers, especially. And you know how nuts I am about lots of white space. It not only fills us with light
    and space but I think it invites us in more.

  2. I think you’ve achieved a perfect balancing act Karen, and I agree with Annie – I love white space too.

  3. Your paintings are beautiful. I imagine that you are a beautiful soul.
