From the garden behind the Shakespeare's Head building in Providence. (In the cool comfort of my air-conditioned studio) I worked back into this watercolor on panel painting with oil, using sketches and photo references. 8"x8", oil, watercolor and pencil on aquaboard.
I crammed the whole late summer garden in a jam jar earlier this month and have been working on it bit by bit. Even the buoyant morning glories strangling the joe pye weed are in there. I am particularly interested in the transition from fully vibrant to crisply shriveled. 40"x40", oil on panel.
