I painted this watercolour of a beautiful waterfall located behind Greenwood, Nova Scotia, titled Fales River. The size is 11" X 14" and the image was painted on 300 lb. Arche Ragpaper. All the white of the paper is not white paint but the exposed natural white paper. I love this waterfall and our family used to make several trips just to see and hear its power. Believe it or not, I only used 4 to 5 colours and mostly from a dirty palette pool. It is funny when I think back when I was a beginner that I went out to the artstore and purchased about 18 tubes of watercolours. Embarrassing! Today, I hardly use more than 5 colours and have around 6 to 8 in my collection although I have standbys.
I just wanted to let you know that I am working on my original art illustrations for my upcoming book on my art and explanations of techniques. The drawings, that will be affordable, will be frequently posted in sections: ART FOR SALE, BLOG and DRAWINGS & SKETCHES. They will be drawings, watercolours and small oil paintings mostly fantasy and whimsical subjects derived from my cultural background Mi'kmaq Legends.
I am passionate about my art and excited to be able to share my work, thoughts and activities directly with you through this site.
