"The Valley Road" (Winchester, Virginia)

watercolor and india ink

2005

 I just realized that this landscape (which is, actually, one of my favorites; it hangs above my desk) isn't on the website. It was the study for the background to "The Hunter in the Valley" (see "fine art" category). And, yes...I'm well-aware that it violates at least two major "rules" of composition.  In my admittedly parochial and necessarily limited experience, Nature tends to do that.
