Transparent watercolor paints were used her to capture the misty charm of the Marin Headlands of the San Francisco Bay area. The Golden Gate Bridge and a speeding boat are faintly visible through the mist. I painted this en plein air, on location. It is painted on heavyweight watercolor paper, and will need a matte and frame for display.

Getting to Know Catherine

Catherine McCargar created her first work of art at five years old, a snowman drawn on blue construction paper. A group of artists invited her to try plein air painting and she fell in love. In her eyes, “the time spent composing and recording in the open air is invaluable to breathe life into a painting.” Catherine currently lives in California and loves tending her garden and being creative in the kitchen when she’s not painting. Fun fact: she occasionally writes stories for her granddaughter with accompanying ink drawings; she recently wrote a series called “Baby Owl Learns to Fly.”
