New watercolor ~ Martha’s House of Lore

Martha's House of Lore #1 ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s the latest Art of Lore

This is the watercolor I painted based on my recent sketch of an early Mount Vernon, the great estate of General and Mrs. Washington on the hilly green banks of the wide Potomac. But in contrast to the black and white boldness of that blueprint, I chose to color the painting with a gentle palette, something a little more Martha than George. After all, who do you think really ran the house?!

Title: Martha’s House of Lore
Painted: July 2017
Paints: Winsor & Newton Professional Water Colours
Paper: Arches Watercolor Block, cold pressed, 140lb 9″x12″
