Chadwick Park

Chadwick Park, 8x8" watercolor, ©Diane Mannion

Local Scene

Have painted at this local park many times.  Lots of boats, views, usually not too crowded, and, best part...  close to home.  

Used Arches watercolor block, great for small studies.  Have discovered Quinacridone Gold, warm and really strong, Winsor and Newton Artist quality.

Hi, Diane. I do like the yellow tones you use. I especially like the very natural yellow sky in your October 11 post.

Thank you, Susan. Sometimes I get a little carried away with quinacridone gold... a gorgeous, warm transparent yellow. Love how it warms things up.
