Cottage Garden - SOLD

“Cottage Bouquet” is a unique, one of a kind painting by Melanie Pruitt. A brand new style of painting for Melanie, this watercolor has multiple layers of washes and colors. And yet, it was painted with only 3 colors of paint blended and mixed to create such a vivid cottage garden picture! A wide variety of texturing and watercolor techniques were used to create this painting. It measures 16" wide x 12" high and is painted with artist quality paints on Arches cold press paper.
