I did this painting for the Makawao Paint out last week here on Maui. Its setting is at Oprah's Ranch looking up towards the mountains. I learned to push back the mountains to create atmosphere. Its a hard thing to do in Hawaii, everything is so colorful one wants to use a lot of bright color.
I do hope this counts as a landscape. This watercolor painting was done on 300 lbs 9×12 paper based on a demo painting in Karlyn Holman’s new book ‘Watercolor without Boundaries’. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out.
