Crawford Notch is my second watercolor painting. It is relatively small and was intended to be a practice exercise. When I started painting in never envisioned that I would actually complete the piece. I used a number of different watercolor techniques, but learned quickly that color could actually be removed once it was applied. This became very important in achieving some of the softer colors in the rocks. I persevered and completed the painting and I think that it turned out rather well. It's relatively small (9" x 12") in comparison to my usual paintings but the size works well with the vertical format. The original and limited edition prints of can be purchased at the museum's gift shop or available for purchase here on-line (see Maine Central Gallery).
Stockbridge is my latest painting and was commissioned by The Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum. The original can be seen at their museum building in Lenox, MA. Limited edition prints of the original can be purchased at the museum's gift shop or available for purchase here on-line (see Diesel Locomotive Gallery). To support the museum's fund raising efforts, The Old Depot Gallery will donate $20 from every print sold to benefit the Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum's restoration and preservation work.
