Bright, intense colors, combine to make a dominent  warm color scheme bring to mind favorite places of interest to people of various backgrounds and economic status. However, most will probably agree that the overall feeling of Fresh Air, despite perceived visual subject matter is one of clear, clean, fresh air.

The subject matter of Fresh Air is not as it may appear. Fresh Air, the watercolor is a painting not specifically descriptive of any one place in the world. This particular watercolor is an amalgam of images scattered here and there in my memory.

What you see is an assortment of shapes, silhouettes, suggesting images similar to mountains, posts, trees, plants, rocks, weeds, etc. This type of approach,–ranslation– allows the viewer to use his own imagination, to participate in the construction, or the suggestion of a scene unique to one’s personal interpretation.
Finally, a note that Fresh Air was created–as the saying goes, before a live, classroom audience. If you would like to try your hand at watercolor painting, or to take your current skills to the next level, I invite you to register for an upcoming class. Details HERE.
