Carolina Stroll – A downtown Wilmington, North Carolina coastal watercolor painting

Filed under: coastal art, watercolor on cold press — laurenmaurerartworks @ 5:21 pm
This was a tricky one for me… all those straight lines! You guys know I struggle with those! I’m more a a loose whirly come what may painter, but this painting had too much detail for that. Also, I used a new paper for the first time ever, Arches Art Board. It is interesting- it’s almost impossible to get a soft edge with it, the paint runs the edge and dries hard. Those of you in the North Carolina area should recognize this view-  it’s the downtown Front Street area of Wilmington. What a great little coastal town! Rachel and I are heading up there for the 9th Annual Art Walk, on September 11th, and we hope to see you there!
