Yes, something new and different for me! I'm usually posting plein air pieces done in my Southern California area but recently I had a request for something special. A new friend wanted me to paint a watercolor for her husband's birthday. As an avid golfer, the subject was the Master's Clubhouse at the Augusta (Georgia) National Golf Club. When I researched the clubhouse online, I was happy to see an elegant building that would make a nice watercolor. There is a flag pole, and large lawn in front with a big map of the United States planted in flowers, a flag planted at Augusta. I really liked the striped awning too. For me this was an exciting project to be painted on a full size sheet of watercolor paper, 22 x 30". Lately, I've been painting 8 x 10" watercolors when I go out with the plein air groups. But I was really looking forward to painting this clubhouse piece and I took my time, painting in stages which were allowed to dry. It was fun and I think it turned out great!
