The Last Covered Bridge – Watercolor

“The Last Covered Bridge” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (available)

This really is the last covered bridge in Wisconsin. I painted this for Cedarburg Plein Air. The challenge was the constant color changes in the water as the sun moved. Spent most of the day painting in this beautiful park shown in the image below.

What’s In The Cupboard? – Watercolor

whatsinthecupboard_mucci

“What’s In The Cupboard?” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci

Royal Port Antiques in Salem, NJ has hosted me during the Arts-In-Bloom studio tour over the past three years. It is a pleasure to pull these wonderful antiques into a still life and paint for the day. Because of all the old crackled paint on the cupboard, I painted on Arches 300# rough paper. Below is the initial sketch. So much fun!

This painting is available and can be shipped framed to 16 x 20, or unframed at 11 x 15. Please email me with questions. mucciyvonne@yahoo.com

“Precious Things” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (available, 11 x 15, framed to 16 x 20) 

Had the pleasure once again of painting live at Royal Port Antiques in Salem, NJ for the Arts-In-Bloom studio tour. They have an amazing selection of antiques which move in and out quickly. The table I had my still life setup sold by the end of the day! The initial drawing and still life is shown below. I am using Hahnemühle watercolor paper which is a bit softer compared to Arches.

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.

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

Kuerner’s Barn

kuernerbarn_mucci

“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

johnchaddhouse-springhouse-mucci

“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.

Reflections Watercolor

“Reflections” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 11 x 14, Sold)

Last painting for Cedarburg Plein Air. The white birches set off this little scene beautifully. They were a needed contrast to all the color reflections in the pond. It was so incredibly hot this day. You wouldn’t know it from the painting, but I was tucked under trees hiding in the shade soaking up the coolness and quiet of this property.

Red Roof Barn Watercolor

“Red Roof Barn” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 16 x 20, Available)

I love any type of barn, but one with a red roof that is striking in a landscape, well, for that reason alone I chose to paint “Red Roof Barn”. It certainly didn’t hurt that it was a fabulously sunny day for painting, couldn’t ask for anything more. Had this spot all to myself during Cedarburg Plein Air, except for the few visitors shown below.

Silver Creek Watercolor

silvercreek_mucci

“Silver Creek” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 14 x 11, Sold)

My “quick paint” at Cedarburg Plein Air. What, how much time from time stamp to framing, two hours, yikes! Yes, I painted like a crazy person with spectators looking over my shoulder. Once you forget they’re there and remember to breathe, everything falls into place. Great fun! Getting a watercolor to dry and in a frame is another story.

Check out the amber plexiglass on top of the easel below. Got it from fellow artist Annie Strack, and it really is helpful to see values in the field!

Looking Up Watercolor

lookingup_mucci

“Looking Up” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 11 x 14, Available)

Painted during Cedarburg Plein Air competition. I had a hard time choosing a subject this day, probably because I felt overwhelmed with choices. If someone says, here, paint this, you have no problem and get painting straight away.  During a plein air competition it is a completely different thought process. You ask yourself: Can I complete this in the allotted time? Is the light good? Is the subject interesting? Would someone else like it. What it really comes down to is do I like it? And the answer was YES! I was interested in the tops of buildings and thought the Cedarburg Art Museum would be a great choice. This is when you hope your sketching skills are strong because they really are the base of all paintings.

This painting is available and can be shipped framed or unframed.

Fine Rye Grist Watercolor

“Fine Rye Grist” Watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 20 x 16, Sold)

“Fine Rye Grist” watercolor was painted during the Cedarburg Plein Air competition in Wisconsin. Pictured is the Concordia Grist Mill, located in the Hamilton Historic District, and was built in 1853 by Edward Janssen and William Gaitsch. I took some liberties by changing the street out front to a dirt road. This is now a private residence. Around back you can see where the creek flowed through the mill. Really cool place!

Purple and Gold Watercolor

“Purple and Gold” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 11 x 14, Sold)

Cedarburg, Wisconsin never fails with interesting painting subjects. The busy town has all kinds of great architecture, both old and new. “Purple and Gold” watercolor was painted on the last day of the Cedarburg Plein Air competition. I chose this building because it was so different. The longer you looked, the more detail you saw. Of course, that always equals a difficult painting because you want to get it right. So happy this painting has found a home in this beautiful building.

Pitman Art Stroll – Moods Farm

pitmanartstroll_mucci

What a great way to spread art through a community. My watercolor “Moods Farm” was one of 30 selected artworks to be included in the annual Pitman Art Stroll. Each banner hanging in town is printed with the artwork and a little bio from each artist. The originals are on exhibit at Pitman Gallery till the end of September. Great fun! Great event! Great gallery, check it out!

“Moods Farm” watercolor depicts an icon in Southern New Jersey. I wanted to capture the beautiful colors to be found at this farm stand. It is apple and pumpkin picking season, so stop by and get a few.

Iconic NYC – Watercolor

“Iconic NYC” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 19 x 23, Available)

You know the famous movie scene, well, still a great subject to paint. Having a little fun painting a street scene as a progressive demo in my last workshop. Cityscapes and figures are always a challenge to paint. Simplifying the abundance of signage was key.

Little Cupcake – Watercolor

littlecupcake_mucci_watercolor

“Little Cupcake” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 19 x 23, Sold)

NYC is bustling no matter what part of town you find yourself. This storefront caught my eye mostly because of the way the light was casting shadows, but also because of the contrast in the shop name to the busy street. I tried to play up the red stop hand in the crossing light as if it was beaconing one to stop in and have a little cupcake. During my last workshop, it was requested to paint a street scene with figures, so this scene was my first thought since I felt so strongly about it when I photographed it.

The day was hot, but the bluegrass music was cool and so were the locals strolling around to check out all the artwork being created. Can’t wait to get back there this summer! ©Yvonne Pecor Mucci, all rights reserved.

“Meadow at Longwood” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (12 x 9, Available)

I had a wonderful fall day painting the meadow at Longwood Gardens with my friend and fellow artist George Gallatig. This location is exceptional because the color continually changes. It truly is a magical place. In the spring I want to return and paint a larger version. The photos below show just how beautiful this location is in the fall. On my easel is a small red plexiglass from Annie Strack which helps one see values when painting. This watercolor is available unframed 12 x 9, or framed to 14 x 11 and can be shipped.

Winter’s Thaw – Watercolor

mucci_winterthaw_watercolor

“Winter’s Thaw” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (12 x 17, Available)

Painting snow is challenging because it is not white. Strong shadows make the scene come alive. Very little of the white paper has been reserved. The block-in below shows how much color is laid down in the first stages. The snow becomes white as you add stronger darks. “Winter’s Thaw” watercolor depicts a little creek that runs a block from my home.

Bouquet – Watercolor

“Bouquet” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (11 x 15, Sold)

“Bouquet” watercolor was painted as a progressive demo during my last workshop. You can always find fresh flowers in the grocery store to use as subject matter. The goal was to paint vibrantly, loosely and interpret the subject without getting hung up on all the detail. I enjoy painting in this style especially after completing complex subjects.
