Day Six ~~ A Painting a Day

I am off to Nags Head with my family for Spring Break Vacation... No more making lunches, carpools, and homework! At least for a week anyway... Yippee


This next watercolor is of laundry on the clothesline. I have always wanted to try to paint clothes on the line. There is a gracefulness about how they hang, and swing with the gentle breeze...

I love this... love blue and white together.
I also think there is something wonderfully simple and beautiful about clothes hanging on a line.

What is it about Laundry that we all love. Is it the freshness?

Tangerine Taiyaki said...

Beautiful! The colours are so nice.

This is so peaceful; it brings back such lovely summer memories. Ahh, the fresh smell on the towels is divine- how did you manage to paint that?!

Lovely - a fresh and unusual subject for watercolors. Very crisp and refreshing. Oh - and I visited Nags Head this past summer! very cool!

Really beautiful and simple...

You know Laura, I haven't seen this one before and it's remarkable in its simplicity and ordinary subject. I remember Mother hanging clothes on the line. She didn't want a clothes dryer for the longest time. She liked the way the clothes smelled. Once my father brought home the airedale, clothes hanging was over. Daisy, the dog, thought clothes on a line were a great game for her! She pulled them off, tipped 'em around the yard, and my mother went out and bought a gas dryer. hahahahaha!
