Watercolor painting of pickleweed and Sandpipers by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Pickleweed and Sandpipers

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 17″h x 20″w, 1989.

This was such an unusual setting because the pickleweed, when exposed at low tide, looks almost alien-especially when it is draped with algae. Though I wouldn’t normally paint such a bizarre scene, but I couldn’t resist doing this painting when I saw Sandpipers feeding among the mucky composition in this coastal slough. I saw this at Elkhorn Slough, California.
