Canarde Dynastie: William, Canarde Comandant 1/30

"William, Canarde Comandant" original watercolor by Carrie Waller 5" x 7"   $75
Hi Everyone,

I signed up to participate in Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 days painting challenge, what was I thinking?  I've already had a conflict, we went out of town over the weekend for a funeral.  So to make up for my lack of painting time I painted in the car.  It was actually better than I thought it would be.  I mean it was a little tricky trying to paint and keep my eyes on the road, but since I was only a back seat driver I was able to concentrate mainly on my painting:)

I decided to paint some architectural features that I photographed years ago when we lived in Europe.  I just loved this French Architecture and the amazing amount of detail that went into the building.  As I was pondering a title it occurred to me that all of my French Faces have beards, which got me thinking about the latest bearded fascination, Duck Dynasty.  So I have my own Canarde Dynastie (Duck Dynasty in French).  Today I have William he is the Canarde Comandant.  He has to put up with the rest of these blockheads and all their shenanigans.  Can't wait to introduce you to the rest of the crew:)



  1. This is really terrific! You nailed those values. Also, I'm sorry for your loss.

  2. Now that is dedication to paint in the car! Great painting. Sorry to hear of your loss.

  3. It's amazing what can be achieved in a car! This is wonderful :0)
