Constitution Village

Watercolor. 10.75″ x 15″

Huntsville, Alabama

This charming “village” is a living history museum that portrays the daily life of villagers in 1819 when Alabama was organized as the 22nd state. I spent a delightful afternoon here meeting costumed villagers who taught me how to churn butter, bake bread, use a spinning wheel or work in the blacksmith shop.

My eye was partial to the herb gardens and laundry as you can see. I liked playing with dry brush techniques in the grassy herbs and exploring the different flower shapes.
