Waters of Scotland

This week’s piece from the past is…

Title: Waters of Scotland

Size: I think it’s 8″ x 10″

Medium: Watercolor on paper

When: Early 2008

Purpose: Wedding gift for my brother and sister-in-law.

Time to complete: I worked on it off and on for about a week.

Thought process: My brother loves anything Scottish, and I wanted to do something special for them as a wedding gift. I was originally going to do a landscape with hills, but because both he and his wife love blue, I did water instead.

Problems I encountered: I hadn’t really dabbled in watercolors before, so attempting something as special as a wedding gift was really stressful. Getting the water to look right was especially challenging.

Favorite part: The hill in the back…or the rocks….or the wave. Too hard to choose.

Least favorite part: The fact that the clouds all slant the same way…oops!

Fun tidbits: This piece was the other painting I photographed in the middle of the parking lot when I did the Lighthouse photos.

Product availability: Products featuring this piece can be found in my Etsy store here.
