Independent Art: Somewhere in St. John’s

Omar Jarmillo shares his fist piece of work as this month’s Independent Artist

Somewhere in St. John's

Well although it is suppose to be spring in St. John’s, there are still many chilly days and warm days are the exception.

When I started this watercolor, it was sunny but windy, and the wind here is cold. After an hour sitting there in the cold I decided it was too much and went home. I left the watercolor on the shelf for 2 weeks until I could come back and finish it.

I prefer to paint live rather than from a photo, and I prefer to do it in warm place.

So dear St. John’s reader, if you a have a nice room with a view that you can lend me for an hour or two (or 20 minutes if I just do a fast sketch) I would be very grateful!
