Haviland Paulk – After the Rain

Artist: Haviland Paulk
Title: After the Rain
Media: Watercolor on watercolor cardstock paper
Grade: 10th grade
School: Bentley Upper School
Teacher: Michelle Cho

I created this piece of art after it rained. I was very inspired by how fresh and beautiful all of the plants around me looked. I wanted to create a portrait that reflected those inspirations. I went with the flow of my mind and created a portrait of a woman who could have been emerging out of a body of water or who had just been in the rain without an umbrella. I thought that using watercolor would be best medium to use, as it overall represented the mood that I was approaching.
