Farm near Westmore Vermont
Watercolor Painting of New England Farm
About this Item
Usually each fall we travel to New England to spend a little time enjoying the colorful autumn colors that are so prevalent there. Of course for me that means painting and sketching. This past October we stayed on the shores of Lake Willoughby in a rustic 1900’s era home owned by a friend of mine, Sam Kent. Lake Willoughby is located in Vermont’s northeast kingdom just north of St. Johnsbury and Lindonville. A dirt road, Hinton Hill Road, leads from the tiny town of Westmore over the mountain behind the lake. It’s one of my favorite drives and affords a beautiful view of the lake. On one of our drives over Hinton Hill Road this little farm caught my eye and I stopped to shoot a few pictures and planned a painting. This painting was done after returning home to my studio in St. George, Utah. I actually used the painting in a watercolor workshop, as a partial demonstration of using receeding values and aerial perspective to achieve distance.
