Marsh


Marsh

While there is much that needs improvement in this quickly done sketch and watercolor, I loved the scene and the memories it invokes of the Isle of Palms, SC, where I raised my children. I much preferred the calmness of the marsh and quiet of the waterway to the pounding surf of the beach.

Lovely use of colour - I can almost hear the grass rustling.

Oh yes, this is so much a scene of calm. I, like you, prefer calmer, quiet lakes and creeks to the crashing ocean. You've captured the sense of place beautifully.
Hugs,

“I much preferred the calmness of the marsh and quiet of the waterway to the pounding surf of the beach.”
This is a very sentimental sketch that portrays your feeling above. I’ve always lived in a city and know nothing about marsh or wetland, but your painting gives me an inkling of its quiet ambiance.

Lovely landscape. I especially like the clouds, sky and water.
