Provincetown Sunset



I got the most wonderful comment from my friend Lorna on yesterday's post. 
She said, "Mary, I think this is my favourite of your paintings.  I don't know why but I love being able to recognize something without it looking exactly like what I would see if I were there myself."
I loved what she said because every artist creates for the connection with the viewer and literal interpretation isn't the only way to go. Thank you Lorna! 
Today's painting is a bit more literal using watercolor and my Micron Pigma pen.

Mary,
this is one of my favorite works you have created--I love the effects you get with the watercolor and pen, and how yo have separated the colors--it is a truly STUNNING piece!

Thanks so much for all the great comments on this watercolor. I think I'm on to something here for my Provincetown gig.

Hi Mary!...It's all about catching the essence... the spirit of a subject... while leaving the viewer to add in what is left purposely missing!

Call it "painterly"... "Sketchy"...
in my humble opinion... Call it a gem!

Good Painting!
Warmest rgards,
Bruce

PS THanks for your visit and kind comment at my site Mary!

This is lovely, especially the colours. Really like pen and wash, never tried it myself, maybe I will!

Very satisfying composition and the colors are spot on!
