Re: "Abandoned" - Watercolor by Hollan Holmes

Thank you for the kind words and constructive comments, everyone. I'll update on Wednesday when I find out if I got juried into the show.

Cheers,

Re: "Abandoned" - Watercolor by Hollan Holmes

Thank you so much for all the kind words, everyone, I'm honored.

I just received word that this watercolor was successfully juried in to the show I entered, the 2017 Plano 125. In fact, all three of my entries made it in. I'm pretty happy about that. Awards are August 5th. If I win anything, I'll let you know.

Thanks for everyone's support and enthusiasm. :-)

Re: "Abandoned" - Watercolor by Hollan Holmes

Credit where it's due, mate!. I'm afraid I'm not very 'arty'. For me, the more a painting or drawing etc looks like the subject, the better. But each to their own.
Thanks for sharing
Jim

Re: "Abandoned" - Watercolor by Hollan Holmes

I am humbled by your skill in capturing the weathered wood. Such patience! It is spectacular. I adore old rural structures (tried to rally support for a 'Rural Sketchers' group!) and this is a wonderful example of why those subjects are so evocative. I'd give you 'Best in Show' for sure!
