Cecile, Your watercolor "Railroad Bridge in Santa Fe" is so well done. It looks like you used a fairly limited palette and really made it work.
thank you yes it was 4 colors
It is wonderful how you have been able to take such a complex structure and define it in space with the shade and shadow. The limited palette helps to prevent distraction to the subject and sets a perfect mood.
I need to add: the powerlines and evergreen on the right are important elements in that the keep the eye from falling off the right side (distance) and give scale. The more I look at this painting, the more I appreciate what you have done.
Thank you! Benjamin you made my day! Sharron you are a continued support and positive force in Plein Air, thank you.
Love it ... harmonious and confidently drawn . Superb
Very strong study Cecile. I like the limited palette very much. I was just looking at a Rembrandt pen and ink that has similar qualities. Where in Santa Fe is this? I will be there in Sep. teaching a plein air workshop.
Wonderful job Cecile. The light and color really make this work.
Thanks Bart! Jeanean thank you, this is at the dead end of Nine Mile Rd.Ed appreciate the comment!
