|Watercolor Painting of Columbia River Gorge, State Of Washington. Artist – Irina Sztukowski|
This painting of a beautiful view of Columbia River Gorge and far mountains of Oregon that you can see from the state of Washington shore I painted el plein-air style.
The weather was constantly changing as the Fall breeze was shaving the leaves from the trees and making wave-like movements on still green grass. The Sun was trying to get through the clouds. I called that sky a watercolor sky as the clouds formations were precisely what happens to watercolor when you put wet paint on a pre-wet paper. The sky practically “painted” itself.
