Sheltered Cove

I finally finished my watercolor painting, Sheltered Cove. I began this painting back in May, but with my kids home from school and space at a premium, I got very little painting done the last several months. In a year of many changes, my family also recently moved to a home on the outskirts of the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. Our new home also includes a studio space for me. After many years painting at the kitchen table, I have a space of my own to create my artwork. I’m so grateful and excited for this opportunity. My first order of business was to finish this painting. It was based on a photograph I took from a trip down the Raquette River. After using Windsor and Newton masking fluid for years, I tried a new product called Incredible White Mask Liquid Frisket, to preserve some whites during the painting. It worked terrific and I would totally recommend it. Here’s a sample of the grasses where I used the product.

I also used the frisket on the grasses at the foreground of the painting. Here is the finished painting Sheltered Cove.
