Relics original watercolor of a wooden windmill by Nita Leland

Relics by Nita Leland

Windmills and western landscapes go together in my mind as a result of many driving trips to Colorado in the 60s and 70s. As a result, windmills tend to appear in my paintings where they never were in real life, as I combine photographs to create atmosphere. This watercolor was painted with dense, opaque colors to create a mood.

The painting appears on p. 67 of Exploring Color as an example of the opaque compatible palette.
