Original Watercolor Painting – Autumn Marsh

Filed under: lowcountry, marsh, watercolor painting — laurenmaurerartworks @ 5:08 pm

I hope everyone’s 2010 is off to a great start! I’ve spent the first little bit painting painting painting! My vacation was a break from everything, including my art, so couldn’t wait to get started and have been at it ever since. I finished this painting of South Carolina’s lowcountry. I took the photo for this painting on my Thanksgiving trip to Edisto Beach.
11×14 watercolor on 140 lb cold press … click here to purchase!
I have been using my brand new palette that Santa brought me! (thank you, Brynne!) I love it-  but I was not sure how to get the old watercolor paint out of my old plaette to reuse in this one! After googling for some help, and not finding any, I remembered that you can put candles in the freezer to get them out of their containers, so I thought I’d give it a try. And it worked! Any other suggestions?


  1. Hi Lauren. Happy 2010 to you, too! Your Autumn Marsh is really beautiful and I have a heightened respect and admiration for watercolorists (is that the term?). :-)I received some watercolors as a present last month and have been trying (failing) to make a "presentable" water color painting. If I could, I'd shoot my water colors to put them out of THEIR misery! :-)Thanks for the inspiration to keep on trying. (I should probably stick with my oils.)Ken B.
