Central Park!

Central Park
Watercolor painting
11" x 15 Mats to 16" x 20"

The watercolor above was done for my son for his birthday and was double matted with a cream white and a rusty brown in a medium brown frame. 

This painting contrasts the natural park settings of the old stone bridge, rugged rocks, trees and lake reflections with the manmade structures of the high rise buildings on the Upper West Side seen in the distance and invites the viewer into the scene to stroll along the foreground path.

As you look for subjects to paint, look for contrasts in your setting to add interest to your work.

Happy Painting!
