East meets West in Watercolor Waterfall Landscape

© M Pruitt 2009


I took a wonderful workshop this summer from a world renown artist and author. He specializes in impressionistic watercolor – and I have so much to learn!

He says the next book he wants to write is about Asian watercolor techniques meeting Western watercolor techniques. I love that concept.

As I’ve practiced all that I learned in that workshop – I’ve had many “toss aside” paintings – but when I end up with one like this, it makes it all worth it!

I call this “Cool Summer Waterfall” – and though it has flavors of Asian painting – it is also a beautiful picture of a cool forest stream here in the Northwest!

Here’s a close up so you can get a better idea of the lovely colors and texture in the rocks and water…

This painting is available in my Etsy shop.

Thanks for stopping by  our VAST blog! I look forward to reading your comments on this painting!
