Becky Schmidt Original Watercolors
While in Nashville, looking for the American Pickers antique shop, we were walkiing through a huge building that contained many individual small stores that lined a long wide main aisle. I was going along at a pretty fast pace, trying to find the right shop, peeking in each one as I went by and I literally stopped in my tracks when I saw this gorgeous red leather chair sitting in the sunshine. It was beautiful!! This painting is based on that red chair. 2020. Painting size: 22” X 14”. Matted frame size: 25” X 17”. $375.
Stonehedge Aqua released a new watercolor paper a few years ago that was jet black, cotton paper 130 lb with the same qualities as Arches. It has been a challenge and thrill to use this new paper! Below are the paintings I’ve created using black watercolor paper. The same watercolor paints are used, meaning these paintings will last for many years.
Absolutely the best coffee I ever had! Even the instant served in the hotels was better than anything I ever mad. Stonehedge Aqua 130 lb black paper. 2020. 15” X 20”. $370.
This was a consignment piece, but I loved how it turned out, and I wanted to show the power of using black watercolor paper. NFS.
This painting is the result of a challenge for a gallery show - to create a square painting with a theme of ‘Circle of Life’. I used Stonehedge Aqua Black 130lb paper, which gives a nice background for the colors. 2019. 12”X12”. $250.
These beautiful glass sculptures were on display in a Sarasota, Florida location that I was touring with a friend, and I thought a reference to them would make a lovely watercolor painting. I took several pictures and used them as a guide in painting this on black Stonehedge Agua 130 lb cold pressed paper. 2020. 16” X 20”. $350.
