This painting came from a trip to a plantation near Charleston, SC. The intention was to capture the softness and ethereal atmosphere of the swamp and trees. I think this method of painting, using lots of water on both sides of the paper, accomplished my goal. It was very tricky--leaving white yet adding dark with lots of green!
