Georgia O'Keeffe Starlit Night watercolor 1917
Georgia O'Keeffe Evening Star watercolor 1917
I prefer the watercolors from Georgia O'Keeffe's early years over her later large oil paintings. I find her watercolors spontaneous, splashy, enthusiastic, bold, and alive, not to mention highly original.
Compare the top two images with this later work, also with the sky as the subject. Is this not more careful, more sterile, or is that just me? Comments appreciated!
