This week's Painting
Finished or not
"Dogtooth," 4 1/2" x 7" (image size)
by Kurt Plinke
waxed watercolor, framed
This little painting was actually completed several weeks ago, but I didn't post it here on Today's Painting Finished or Not, so here it is. I have a few more of these that I'll be posting from time to time.
This is a watercolor painting of a small plant called Dogtooth Violet. It grows down near the riverbanks along the Choptank. I found this one tucked up along a fallen log. I like the contrast between the flower and the dark shadow cast by the log.
I started this painting with a value study in pencil down by the river. When I went back up to the studio, I completed the watercolor.
