Inside Brandywine River Museum made for a cozy day of painting during Chadds Ford Paint Out. Large sunny windows were a great alternative to freezing temps outside! Exploring the landscape during winter really expands your understanding of the landscape. Love this event, especially since I got to paint with a few friends.

This event is hosted by Chadds Ford Historical Society. Artwork remains on exhibit for sale at CFHS through 3/2/18 www.chaddsfordhistory.org

Color of Winter

“The Color of Winter” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed to 11 x 14, Sold)

This watercolor was painted during the Chadds Ford Paint Out on February 1st.  Winter exposed these gnarly trees along the creek and there was enough light left on a very cold day to get one more painting completed. So glad I did because the colors are beautiful in this season, you just have to bundle up, get out there, and enjoy them.

Kuerner’s Barn

“Kuerner’s Farm” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed to 14 x 11, Available)

I love painting at Kuerner Farm, also known as Ring Farm, a historic farm in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania made famous by Andrew Wyeth. Honestly, I did not love it so much on this windy, freezing day during the Chadds Ford Paint Out. My easel blew over a few times and I could not keep from shaking in the wind, so this one is only half a plein air because I completed the painting from the warmth of my home. There are some days you are not meant to paint en plein air! Still, it is a lovely painting in need of a new home.

Chadd Ford Paint Out

“John Chad House” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 11 x 14, Sold)

Chadds Ford Paint Out is one of the few winter plein air events on the east coast. No awards are given, just a whole lot of great painting. This was the first day of painting on a low light and cold day. The temperature was above freezing and with the addition of hand warmers in my boots I had a full day of painting. Winter is an amazing time to paint because everything is exposed and the gentle color is beautiful.

Gertrude and Heathcliff – Watercolor

Gertrude & Heathcliff watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci

Gertrude & Heathcliff watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 11 x 14, Available)

Gertrude and Heathcliff watercolor depicts my go to place down the shore. In this painting, I wanted to push the variety of color found in the water.

When I look at this watercolor it makes me chuckle a little imagining those birds carrying on a conversation. The name is a nod to the past when comedian Red Skelton performed skits about two seagulls named Gertrude and Heathcliff.

Coverdale Farm Preserve, located in Greenville Delaware, was my painting location site for day one of the Plein Air Brandywine Valley competition. Great spot, full of animals and a gorgeous field stone barn. So many subject choices here, but I loved the sheep leading up to the main barn. Perfect sunny day resulted in this painting.

Low Tide At East Point – Watercolor

Low Tide At East Point watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 24 x 18, Available)

Low Tide At East Point watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 23 x 19, Available)

East Point Lighthouse sits along the Delaware Bay in one of the most serene, beautiful locations in Heislerville, New Jersey.  In this watercolor, I wanted to portray the sea grasses and the terrain leading up to the light house.  I know this location has been painted, sketched and photographed by numerous artists over the years, but it is irresistible subject matter.  Painting on location here is unbelievably peaceful.

I painted “Low Tide At East Point” for the annual Nature And The Landscape competition through Gallery 50, Inc. in Bridgeton, NJ. The exhibit is a comprehensive look at the watershed throughout southern New Jersey as portrayed by many local artists.  I was thrilled to be included.

This watercolor painting is available.
Frame size is 23 x 19, mat opening is 18 x 14

Sunset Lake Watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 20 x 16, Sold)

The Cumberland County Cultural & Heritage Commission partners with Gallery 50, Inc. in Bridgeton, NJ to host the Cohansey Riverfest Plein Air Competition.  Each year the number of local artists participating increases, which results in a beautiful painting exhibition featuring a very important watershed in southern New Jersey.  Thank you to Matt and Gallery 50 for all their work in putting this event together.

Last year when I participated, Sunset Lake was down to a small stream.  So happy to see the repairs finished and this lake back to its previous splendor.  Nice day painting while watching ducks, fishermen and locals come and go!

Salem NJ Pride – Watercolor

Salem Pride watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci
(Framed 16 x 20, Sold) Inquiries to mucciyvonne@yahoo.com

The weather was great for the Salem County Arts In Bloom tour! Once again, Royal Port Antiques hosted the Art League.  Just south of Royal Port you can find many beautiful historical homes, which is where I painted en plein air.  These doors and the flag drew me in.  It was a lot of fun to talk with people taking the tour while painting.

Salem Pride watercolor depicts two homes on Market Street in Salem, NJ. To the left is the James Wood – 1760 colonial, on the right is the Samuel Clement – 1790s federal style brick.
