Bass Lake morning

Posted by Stephen Quirke on December 19, 2011 under Art, Betty's Bay, painting, watercolor, watercolour | 8 Comments to Read

Bass Lake as the sun rises.  Watercolour on 300gm Arches Rough (about 280x760mm)

On Saturday I delivered a parcel of paintings to be reviewed by the client who requested the Betty’s Bay triptych.  Check out the final update to the final (till I start the next one) version.  I put in a couple of watercolours on which I had been working over the last week.  One of these was this morning scene finished as the family were in the car and the engine was running.   I had worked till the wee hours to get it done.  Dark watercolours can go horribly wrong and most of the work was about biting the bullet and doing the next wash.

These all-night painting jobs are great fun but leave me a little zonked.

    Dreamy. That is what this is. I like the wide open feel and the somberness of this piece, Stephen.

    I love the purples in this painting.

    Hey Leslie – that is a great insight – it is quite somber isn’t it? That orange cloud really glows – I want to work out how to capture that.

  • Stephen Quirke said,

    Hi Carol – yeah they kind of work hey? I must give this another go.

  • Sonya Chasey said,

    Hi Steven – Happy New Year ! Good to see you’re still making lots of beautiful landscape paintings – this one’s very atmospheric.

  • Sonya Chasey said,

    Sorry – I’ve spelt your name wrong!

  • Stephen Quirke said,

    Hi Sonya – it is so good to hear from you again – never mind about the spelling. Well I am still going yes – hoping to get more done this year. I see you have been working hard your side, creating your evocative landscapes.
