Illustration Friday ~ GREEN


An unfinished watercolor...actually, I kind of liked how the white space looked, so I doubt I'll finish painting this one. This is part of the Wilmington campus of the University of Delaware. The land was originally part of many DuPont family owned farms.

I like this a lot, this piece of art is very abstract in my point of view because you can set this image where ever want. That is hard to explain but you can through this image into real life anywhewre in the world and it will fit in.

Carlene said...

It's beautiful! All that white space makes the gate look like a magical doorway.

I really like the white space there as well...nice washes of color!

Brine Blank said...

Agreed...very nice use of whitespace...nice painting...My vote is you stopped at just the right time...sometimes completion can be overrated...

What a wonderful illustration, looks so warm and friendly, unlike Chicago at the moment! Nice work!

Wasn't it Michaelangelo who would sculpt just until he "freed" the image from the stone?...you've painted until you've freed the image from your mind!

Keep Creating!
