Painting a Day – Redwood Cove
7.5″ x 11″ on 140 lb. watercolor paper
What’s Nibblefest you may be wondering? It’s a monthly activity in which the objective is to get the most number of bids from different individuals. That’s why the price starts so incredibly low. So help me out, folks, I’d like to be a contender this time; it will help my visibility and newly-launched store.
You can bid in very small increments and win yourself a nice little original painting. It’s not the number of bids that counts, it’s the number of different unique bidders. I may not do this every month, but I thought I’d try it once in a while just to see what happens. And of course you can bid twice, but your seller name will only count once for the contest.
The monthly NFAC theme is “gnarled trees” so this one seemed to be old and ropy enough to qualify. The location is the Northern California coast, near Humboldt County, where we went several years ago for a video shoot about a food bank.
What else can I say about this? Well, it was painted with only two brushes – a 3/4″ long-handled flat … and a very small thin “rigger” for the little twigs.
