Need Direction?


Here are a couple of 5x7s of a weathervane that is in the back yard. It has been there for many years now and has developed some rust but I still enjoy it.

Vicki...This is great...I love weather vanes! If you do another, I would like to see the second vane NOT "kiss" the horizon as it is doing in this rendition. Your accuracy is stupendous!

Thanks Madelaine and Susan. I "saw" the horizon thing when the painting was finished so I probably will do another at some point but these were my "unwind" paintings after "Dog's Life" -lol.

Hi Vicki - I especially love this open sky with the larger weather vein; great name as well.

Vicki Greene said...

Thanks Kathy!

Vicki, these are really beautiful, I love the colors you gave to the angelflags, and I love also landsvcapes and how you rendered the sky! Brava!

P.s. my fav is the one where the angel points at the sky!

Vicki Greene said...

Thanks Loredana! That is my favorite too.

Unusual subject and it seems you have cracked the horror of 'greens' with such a variety of tones. BTW (being lazy) I'll comment on the resting dog in the hammock here to say its absolutely great and a wonderful donation. Don't you dare change a thing.

Vicki Greene said...

Thanks Joan. It is amazing what you can find to paint in your own backyard. Thank you so much for your comment on the doggie. I framed her this weekend and will be sending her off soon.

Your weather vane watercolors are marvelous!! I don't mind at all that the second one 'breaks the rules'-- it still works! The rendition of the rusty metal is quite convincing.

Vicki Greene said...

Thank you. I enjoyed my visit to your blog and have added you to my blog list.

Really good watercolors of an unusual and intriguing subject. I enjoyed seeing them very much - love the gentle 'breeze' of greens that seem to play on the vanes.

Vicki Greene said...

Thank you so much Sandy. Glad to see you back in the cyber world.
