This landscape watercolor painting of the Lamoile River by Laurie Rohner captures the river that meandered in front of our home in Vermont. It is summer and the river is low but you can still catch a glimpse of a kayak being gently paddled down the river. The colors are soft and the painting radiates the heat of the day. To the right are the pines shading the water but I painted the water clear and calm showing the rocks under the softness of the water. It is in contrast to the sunlight shores on the left. I gave a focal point in the center of the painting that brings you back into the painting with the shoreline of the river and the hazy mountain in the distance. This is one of my favorite watercolor landscape paintings.
