Mighty Mississippi - #12 - Original Watercolor Painting

Today I'm posting my twelfth weekly watercolor painting, titled Mighty Mississippi. A few years ago, I took a trip on one of the Mississippi river boats that dock at Memphis. This tug pushing a large barge near the Hernando-DeSoto bridge intrigued me, and I snapped a few photos of it. The actual day was dreary and overcast, but I prefer strong sunlight and shadows because they add drama and interest to a painting. Memphis and Mississippi River fans will enjoy this 7.5" x 11" painting matted into a 12" x 16" or 14" x 18" frame.

If you're interested in purchasing this or any other weekly watercolor painting for $100 including shipping, or if you'd like to see more of my paintings, please visit my Weekly Watercolor website. You can see how these paintings look matted and framed on my Order page there.
