Scenes of New England is a new collection of watercolor technique art work created from fine art photographs by Edward M. Fielding.
Created from scenic vistas around the region, this collection of fine artworks explores the classic New England landscape and landmarks including old red barns in the snow, forests, ponds, covered bridges, old colonial houses and more.
New England is a northeastern region of the United States comprising the states of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. It’s known for its Colonial past, Atlantic coastline, changing autumn foliage and forested mountains. Boston, Massachusetts, the region’s hub, pre-dates the American Revolution, and its Freedom Trail passes sites that were critical to the nation’s founding.
From photographic artist Edward M. Fielding:
What I love about the New England region is the variety of landscape one can fine within a few hours drive. Out in the west one can drive all day between one dramatic vista to the other but in New England, the next exciting view can be right around the corner.
We have the dramatic coastline from the craggy harbors of Rhode Island to the sandy beaches of Cape Cod to the rocky shores of Maine. In land the Green and White Mountains beckon to be hiked and skiied. Once you get off the highways, the region provides endless history to explore and village after village of old historic buildings with traditional family farms in between.
In particular the region I use as my home base, the Upper Valley, seems to have endless back roads to explore, always surprising me with an old hundred year old barn, a classic car in the driveway or a beautiful display of fall foliage. Plus of course a locally produced bottle of maple syrup or cheese made from the cows yonder in the field.
