Something Stormy

I did two watercolors today, and in a continuation of yesterday’s doldrums, I wasn’t completely satisfied with either. Of the two, this — the second — was my favorite.

Watercolor 160706 Stormy Road

I love painting skies, and I wanted to do something stormy. Maybe it’s reflecting a bit of my mood, but I liked the darker silhouettes for the tree line. I wanted a “rainy” feeling, and I hope I accomplished that.

The painting reminds me a bit of an old country road on a rainy evening. I hope you enjoy it, too.

  1. I think this one is one of your best yet. I think you have a real feel for atmospheric, emotional landscapes – I think that is hard to do, convey such feeling with a few brushstrokes.

  2. Yes, it does, and another well-done piece. Landscapes are really tough, in my experience, but I think you’re having a nice go at them, Judith. I hope things get better for you; what goes down must come up!

  5. Love it, Judith! Reminded me of the long road we travel when we go home to my father’s hometown in the province. Good old memories!

    • Thank you. I like the concept of “stormy serenity” and I think that’s what I often feel when storm clouds are brewing. It’s an odd emotion to explain, isn’t it?

      • Yeah it is. I rather like it. Its a kind of knowing that you get; that in the face of it, all will be well. Or an inner calm while everything else is raging round about, or threatening to anyway. I love storms and rainy days. 🙂

      • I agree completely with all you’ve said. We’re having severe storms this morning. I was supposed to be on the road for a trip…got to postpone it for a couple of hours, at least. But I’m enjoying the rain 🙂

  12. Those skies are a bit like what we have here right now. There’s a storm coming in and it’s been raining really hard since yesterday.

    I love your wash artworks! This one makes me want to make myself a cup of hot chocolate and just stare out the window.

  13. Great painting Judith, you seem to be working with a limited palette which makes such a minimalist image very effective. Mystical.
