I taught art classes to wonderful children in a very small k - 12 country school when I lived in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. This is a view from a hill looking down on the school. It was a gorgeous drive to work everyday.
This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display. The image size measures 20"H x 28"W on 22"H x 30"W paper.
Watercolor paint is made of pigments suspended in a water-based solution. Watercolor, which refers to both the medium and the finished artwork, is typically applied to paper. It is translucent, and appears luminous on the surface of the paper. Watercolor painting is a very old medium, dating back to the Renaissance when it was used primarily for botanical and wildlife illustration.
Paper is a very common surface for all types of artwork, including photography, printmaking, drawing and painting. Art paper varies in thickness and color. Read the notes section to learn more about the paper used to create this artwork. If not noted as framed, most paper artwork will require framing.
A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other.
