Color Anyone?  Another White Reference Photo – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor & Sharpie

Since yesterday’s post was totally void of color, I thought you might like some.  🙂

This was painted from a photo by Lisilk at WetCanvas.  The reference photo was all white, except for the nature part.  It was taken in the Bahamas where Li lives.  Her photos are always amazing!

About Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson helped spark the transcendentalist movement with the essay Nature, which described his belief in the spiritual essence of humanity and the natural world. He was born in Boston in 1803. He was a Unitarian minister until he resigned in 1832 to become a philosopher and writer. He suffered the untimely deaths of many of his loved ones: three brothers, his first wife at age 20, and his eldest son at age five. Emerson died in 1882.

    Wow does THAT look like an ideal spot to set up an easel. Ok, I don’t use an easel, but a drawing table at least. And lemonade! (With vodka or without, depending). I just love the colorful architecture with interesting details. (Wait, can I call it architecture if it’s mostly just a doorway and porch?) Love those fronds with the sea and sky behind.
