Gardens and Parks, The Old Swing, by Penny StewArt


"The Old Swing by the Tree"
I tried to indicate the shadow beneath the swing, but I don't know if that worked or not.  Watercolor and pen on 140# hot press WC Paper, ATC size, 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

  1. Precious. I love swings and swinging on them. Love the stone wall too! Shadow looks fine.

  2. This painting is so sweet. Reminds me of times gone by when swings were something included in every day play and life. Great job. So much detail in such a small painting, I keep seeing other creatives working with the small sizes and now I am ready to try it out. Happy PPF Penny and the shadowing looks great to me.

  8. Penny, this is just calling out for someone to come and sit and swing...legs dangling and hair flying in the air. Great sketch!!
