the brook

$60 - 5x7"original watercolour painting with 8x10"mat.

It turns out that the James Gardens in Toronto is quite the hidden gem! A bunch of us from the Don Valley Art Club went painting there on Saturday only to discover hidden brooks, a beautiful duck pond, and lots of frogs and turtles. The place is a painters dream.
Here's a pic of my paintbox with my watercolour palette in it and a 6x8" watercolour pad bulldog clipped to it. I've done a lot of plein-air painting and urban sketching in this trusty little box.

  1. Very wonderful outdoors painting with so nice colours !!!

    1. Thanks so much. It's good to get out there to paint... bugs and all. ; )

  2. Nora - this is lovely and enjoyed seeing your trusty palette. This would certainly be my kind of spot to paint. Have a delightful day.
