Drumsack Farm Painting

Painting the landscapes outside where we live, as well as a bit of the inside, over the past month has been a fun way to get back into more regular watercolor painting.

With the latest one, I spent more time on it and worked sporadically over the course of several days. It was good just to have a piece out on the table that I could sit down and work a little on as I felt like it. It’s also kind of essential with watercolors in some sense as you need to allow for drying time in between sections, depending on the look you are going for. I’m sure this process annoyed the crap out of my wife and kids but hey, it was worth it. 😂

Sunsets in the dark

The sun sets after 10pm right now and it’s light out well into the night at the moment. Along with that, we also get some spectacular sunsets from our perch here on the farm. I’ve started to do some watercolor painting while standing at the kitchen counter, trying to chase the changing colors of the sunset through the window. It’s crazy how fast it changes over the course of the roughly 45 mins it takes to do these. While it gets dark in the kitchen, the light from outside makes it easy enough to work. I love ending the day with these.
