Durant Nature Park in Raleigh, North Carolina is one of my favorite places! I have done many watercolor and oil plein air paintings there. And quite a few studio paintings as well. I saw this beautiful view couple of days ago and had to paint it in my studio! I paint on variety of paper surfaces. Keeps me challenged! This painting is on the hot-pressed paper. Inspired by Victorian watercolors, especially watercolors of John William North. So, it is different from my other recent paintings. I worked on this for a long time. Many little brushstrokes. I also broke one of my own rules! I completed this painting without any form of drawing. Gotta keep things interesting…
