Title: Ponte Vecchio Stroll
Weight: 9.0 lbs.
Ponte Vecchio Stroll was one of those images that I turned, glimpsed and knew I had to paint it. I am interested in populating my paintings in the travel series with people. Usually that means making use of the tourists. I am only looking for the shapes they create within my composition, so recognizability is not an issue. The focal point of this painting is interesting because the single,old gentleman with his trilby hat and walking stick definitely does not look like a tourist and seems like he is just out for his daily stroll. Once again the dark, warm areas serve to create a value pattern and give contrast to all the vibrant colors in a horizontal line of the clothing of the tourists. The cool greens frame the focal point and the same color is used as light reflection. Ponte Vecchio Stroll won Best in Show at the Virginia Watercolor Society Annual Juried Exhibition in 2008 and was included in the Southern Watercolor Society Juried Exhibition in 2009. It has just be released for sale. The price includes archival framing, cotton rag mat and backing, wide, black, metal frame with hardware and plexiglass glazing.

About Giclee Prints
Pronouced (zhee-klay) Giclee printing provides better color accuracy than any other means of reproduction. Images are generated from high resolution digitals scans and printed with archival quality, pigment inks onto fine-art papers or canvas. The quality of a giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries and photographic galleries.

Lynn Hosegood has been on a creative journey for over 25 years. Her medium of choice is watercolor which she uses it in a very painterly manner with high value contrast and intense color spots. After graduating with a studio arts degree from Salisbury State College (now Salisbury University) in 1985 Lynn worked as a portrait artist and turned her attention to the landscape and architectural subject matter when she returned to her native England for three years. While there she studied miniature painting and was accepted as a member and exhibited with The Hilliard Society, The Society of Limners and she was included in group shows with The Royal Miniature Society and London’s Westminster Gallery and Mall Galleries. Working from her Williamsburg, Virginia home studio, Lynn now works on children’s book illustrations, paintings for her print series and large watercolors for regional, national and international juried shows and competitions. Her main focus is the large watercolor paintings resourced from her travels throughout Europe, Singapore, Caribbean and Central America. Her prints are found locally in Williamsburg and Jamestowne at Barnes and Noble, Merchants Square, Jamestown/Yorktown Foundation, William and Mary Alumni Association. Also at college campus bookstores at Roanoke College, Hollins University, University of Mary Washington, Salisbury University. Lynn teaches classes in Watercolor and Principles and Elements of Design at the Williamsburg Landing and Gloucester Arts on Main, Virginia
I love the process of painting, especially since I have found my niche in my travel paintings. Contrary to most art methods and philosophies, I am an analytical painter. All my work starts with 100's of digital images shot on my travels. Browsing my images, I am prompted to start a painting project with recalling the experience, referring to sketches, creating the concept, using my images and finding bits and pieces from maybe 10-12 digital pictures. My painting projects then become a series of questions, I jot in my notebook with sketches until all is clear: the concept, the stylizing, the composition, the color temperature, contrasts and palette. Of course there are adjustments along the way and even new starts but I feel blessed to have the journey as my life's focus.
