'The Rock' by Steve Porter

I was so taken by the greens in this rock and its surroundings that i decided to use a simple palate in greens and purple.  For me ,  painting is not just about copying what i see, but enhancing the things that drew me to the subject in the first place . The watercolor is 11 1/2" x 15"


  1. great shapes,colors and composition

  2. Nice painting. Is that a space ship that landed intending to abduct the mermaid?

    Incredibly effective use of limited palette, beside the terrific composition!
