Faded Blues – Watercolor

"Faded Blues" watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 11 x 14, available)

“Faded Blues” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 11 x 14, available)

When it is full summer and you’re painting plein air, sometimes you want a subject without a lot of green. That’s one of the reasons I chose to paint “Faded Blues”. Loved the old wood and missing shutter on this building that was being restored. It used to be a general store on Still Pond Road.

Such a rainy week for the Chestertown RiverArts “Paint The Town” plein air competition, but it did not stop any of the artists from producing quality work. The misting actually helped me apply texture on the blue clapboard.

This painting is available and can be shipped. Inquiries to mucciyvonne@yahoo.com

    Love the faded blues…really looks authentic!

    • It started misting right after the clapboard was painted and I wasn’t under cover yet. You’ll get the same effect with a spray water bottle in a studio setting.

    Enjoyed your latest works, inparticular, “Faded blues”. The misty rain effect to your painting seemed to add a unique character that, in my mind at least, make the blues jump out. Always well done. Gil Santiago

    • Thanks! Getting ready to post a few more from WI. I hope you get to enjoy painting during these beautiful summer days!
