I have continued adding detail to the watercolor painting of the Florence Griswold Museum. There is interesting architectural details in the building that I have added to the painting. As I am painting I step back and look at the painting from a distance to decide if what I have done looks good or not. Most paintings are viewed from a little distance away, not one foot away where I am painting from.
The trees and the daffodils were worked on next. The deciduous trees in early spring have no leaves yet just buds. When the daffodils are in bloom here in Connecticut the trees are usually budding. It’s important to have a believable scene so I try to keep things accurate. I should be finishing this Florence Griswold Museum painting over the weekend and will post a photo of the final result.
Thanks, P.J. Cook
