Afternoon Breeze by Linda Baker 20×20 Watercolor
American Watercolor Society – Award, Watercolor West – Award
Linda Daly Baker. If you aren’t familiar with her yet, you will be. She is an amazing watercolorist. Her paintings standout, the level of detail, the perfection, the wonderful feelings they hold. I urge you to check out Linda’s website, it’s a treat!
I am featuring two of Linda’s paintings, each is unique, but both have captivating light and detail. The colors are wonderful! I watched Linda’s video on Sketching, and she is so right when she says that if you don’t like your sketch, you won’t like your painting… it’s the simple truth. I know I need to sketch much more! Afternoon Breeze (above) is from such a cool vantage point! I love this perspective, it’s one that is for those who truly can sketch well!
Pins and Strings by Linda Baker 34×30″ Watercolor

What a fabulous painting. It seems the string and it’s shadow are the stars of this show. I love the piece of furniture and the way the light hits creating a multitude of colors. I have always loved watercolor paintings, there is something about them that can be so magical!
Have you thought about taking a watercolor workshop? Well, are you ever in luck! Check out Linda’s WORKSHOP SCHEDULE! Also be sure to check out Linda’s VIDEOS (and DVD’s too!). I can tell that she would be wonderful to take a workshop from. Nice lady!
