|"Pratt Cove, Springtime," 10 x 20" acrylic on canvas, copyright Joan Cole 2011|
I began this painting on a rainy spring day down near the railroad tracks in Deep River, looking out over Pratt Cove. It was a beautiful misty day, and the wild yellow irises were blooming. By working on it on and off since then, I have been able to apply many layers of thin glazes of color, which give the piece added glow. I hope you enjoy looking at it.
