Splash # 5


27" X 19" acrylic on illustration board

This is my entry for the current Florida Watercolor Society Non-Signature Member Online Show. I have previously painted splashes in blue tones, brown tones and now green tones. My husband "posed" lying on his stomach on the sofa with his feet in the air. He's such a good sport! The splash came from on site observation of grandsons in the pool, stones tossed into the lake, playing with the garden hose, etc!

I've had fun with this series and may see if I can come up with still another splashing idea!

  4. Rosemary, the colors in that water are beautiful. With the well-painted splashes, I can almost see him moving.
