here is the watercolor triptych completed today. each painting is 40 x 30.. and together make a 9 + wide statement

i paid a lot of attention to having the paintings coordinate. the palette -- and the varying views of the figure make this piece fascinating.

left panel- Dealing With Loss
center panel- Rinse and Repeat
right panel- Hydro Therapy

here is the triptych that i've been working on --... each panel measures 20 x 24. the overall painting is 8 feet wide. this was a challenge.. as i'm not comfortable painting figurative acrylics. it's about accepting/resisting change.... a huge metaphor for my life right now.

righteous watercolor

this is why i love watercolor! it's big, and bold.. and righteous!
these two swimmers are part of a series --- of four. i will be painting the next two this week.

the left panel: DEALING WITH LOSS
the right panel: RINSE AND REPEAT

each painting relates to the other in palette and composition. the cobalt turquoise and burnt sienna create most of the shadow -- which define the figure.
each painting measures 41 x 29.

any thoughts on titles?
