Watercolor and Pastel Artists at CHAW

What the Wednesday Studio artists have been doing lately

I thought you might like to see some of the artwork that we have finished that hasn’t been published in the blog, so I asked people to send me some of their art.

I’m breaking the work up into two separate blog posts. Here you go, In alphabetical order by artist:

Ellen Cornett

These three drawings are part of a series of illustrations Ellen did for a storybook she is publishing, The Fisherman and the Flounder. That classic tale is from the Brothers Grimm and other sources, but Ellen has reimagined it and written the story in her own words, along with 15 gorgeous illustrations. Here are three of them:

Ellen Cornett: Pope. Colored pencil.
Ellen Cornett: Living in Luxury. Colored pencil.
Ellen Cornett: Rock Star. Colored pencil.

Kay Elsasser

One of our most prolific members, Kay has kept her prodigious pace even with the arrival of her first grandchild, Owen, in January. These are just five of the many paintings and drawings Kay has completed.

Kay Elsasser: Shenandoah. Oil.
Kay Elsasser: Virginia Countryside. Watercolor.
Kay Elasser: Swamp. Watercolor.
Kay Elsasser: Near Sperryville. Watercolor.


Kay Elsasser: Bunny Rabbit. Colored pencil.

Tara Hamilton

Tara works pretty exclusively in watercolor, with stunning results like these.

Tara Hamilton: Free Fall. Watercolor.
Tara Hamilton: Country Road. Watercolor.
Tara Hamilton: Creek Life. Watercolor.
