Early Snow – a painting a day

Early Snow

There is a perfectly good reason why your seeing double.  I painted this painting twice. I had some problems I didn’ t feel I could resolve with the first painting. Unfortunately the second painting has a shadow on it from a curl in the paper. (That shadow will not be there )The sun is getting low so I wanted to get the photos taken and up on the blog. I didn’t have time to get it flatened out. Sometimes that takes overnight.

This is a perfect example of the same painting painted by the same artist yet they don’t come out the same. That’s watercolor for you. It has a certain life all its own and it tends to lead the artist.

In case your wondering why I repainted it… The problem was: the water in the background wasn’t quite as horizontal as I would like.
