The Rusty Bucket

Rusty Bucket

It is what it is…a rusty bucket or rusty pail in the foliage. I painted this one this afternoon since there was rain in the forecast. I had a tray full of watercolors, and today I wanted to get them used up before washing of my tray, so out if it came, “The Rusty Bucket.”

Just had supper and it still, no rain; the drought goes on.

Watercolor painting on 140 lb. watercolor paper.

  1. Well balanced composition. Nice work.

  2. Really love the colours on this one. Bright and inviting. And the textures in the foliage is very nice, too.

  3. I like the contrast of all that texture and color against the plain old rusty bucket, Debbie. Good job on creating something with your leftover paint. Did you sponge the white?

    • Thanks Leslie, it was fun to find way to get rid of the paint; made me feel like a kid. The white was applied with a round brush, flat on the end, as if cut straight across, and the bristles were stiff.

  4. From a old rusty bucket himself (me), this is really beautiful debbie.

  5. I like the sponging of the flowers and foliage. And I really like the blues and browns of your rusty old pail.

    • Thanks Carol, but there was no sponging technique used in this painting. It was all done with paint brushes. I really like painting rusty pots and pails. I’ve done one or two in the recent past and enjoy it quite a bit. Thank you for commenting, Carol!!
