Cool Run – Cedarburg Plein Air

Cool Run watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci

Cool Run watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci

It was a nice hot sunny day in Cedarburg, perfect for painting en plein air.  The moving water of Cedar Creek was both mesmerizing and challenging.  The cool water running over the dam and cascading down the rocks mid creek was bright white in the sunlight.  My goal in this watercolor was to preserve those whites along with trying to keep a loose feel to the painting.  This location was popular and it was nice to have the company of other artists while painting.  Each artist’s view was completely different even though we were standing only a few paces apart.

This watercolor painting is available for purchase.
Frame size is 16 x 20, mat opening is 11.5 x 15.5.  It is painted on 140 pound Arches cold press paper.  Inquiries to

    Beautiful work Yvonne. Water is tough to capture, and watercolor a difficult medium. You’ve maintained that magical sparkle and shimmer, which is impressive. Thanks for sharing. Alden
