PLEIN AIR WATERCOLORS
For the last 30+ years I have been a fairly serious Sunday and vacation painter of landscapes in watercolor, but I have never had an easy time dealing with the local landscape. What I liked to paint were expanses of sea, sky or mountains. In northwest Connecticut we are surrounded by a beautiful but complicated landscape, full of masses of vegetation. In 2004 I decided I should conquer my fear of the local landscape and so set myself the task of making a painting a day of the countryside of Cornwall and its surrounding area.
For this show I have also included paintings from some of other wild and beautiful places that I have had the pleasure of visiting in the last few years.
