The Lady at Rest
Original watercolor by Tim Myrick
9.25"w X 14.25"h
As an artist, I like to connect with the subjects I paint. I feel the energy and mood of a place, hear the sounds and take in the smells that mold a visitor’s impression of a specific place. But mostly, I love to meet the people and hear their stories. These are the defining characteristics I try to capture in my work. On a trip to Florida, Mayport Village – just a short jaunt from Jacksonville – was the highlight of my search for seaside subjects to paint. Working shrimp boats created a dynamic backdrop for a beautiful old shrimp boat, which was moored while awaiting refurbishment. If you like this one, see the companion painting – “Among the Shrimpboats.” – Tim Myrick
Tim employs masterful techniques in transparent watercolor and dry-brush, to create paintings with unusual depth and detail. His subjects depict simple pleasures, respect for nature, and the ability to capture the unique warmth and character of people and their environments.
