Duck Decoys

Duck Decoys
One day while out antiquing, I walked into a very dark, old barn filled with all sorts of interesting items. These duck decoys sat on a ledge by a window. The sun was bright and warm and beyond the barn was a barnyard with chickens. The contrast of the dark inside and the bright outside caught my eye and I snapped several photos for future paintings.

Another place I am drawn to is junkyards. I love to see old rusty machinery. The structure and textures fascinate me. I am sure this old car was a prized possession in its day. Now it a sat in the scrapyard with other broken, rusty relics.

"Hong Kong Harbor" An Original Watercolor by Donna Berk Barlup

"Hong Kong Harbor"
An Original Watercolor by Donna Berk Barlup

I started this painting in my workshop in Baltimore with Stewart White.  He was teaching washes and told me I was doing this wrong.  I took it home to work on it in the studio.  I didn't do it his way but it is my painting. 
The colors drew me to this view.  We cruised through Hong Kong Harbor on a Chinese junk, floating in and around these huge fishing boats.
