Watercolor of the day ~ Martha’s House of Lore

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

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

This is a watercolor based on a sketch I made 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 starkness of the drawing, I chose to color the painting with a gentle palette, something a bit 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″
