The Northwest Watercolor Society has a new show in its gallery at the Seattle Design Center celebrating light in watercolor painting through July 28, 2012. As a member I have two paintings in the show that were done early in my watercolor practice. Feeding the Ducks not only shows a companionable scene at Green Lake of 2 young friends, Shayla Miller and Molly Yoder-Williams, but a brilliant display of light across the water.
Light implies shadow and the painting of my deck was all about the pattern of the shadows cast by the railings. My back yard wasn’t really a beach, but I wished for that so I substituted the ocean and sand for grass, fallen leaves and garage siding in Dream Deck.
To see the work of many more watercolor artists, visit the exhibition:
Mondays through Fridays, 9:00am – 5:00pm, through July 28.
