Charm of Ephrata' is an Ephrata, PA USA street scene in the heart of Lancaster County, well known for its Pennsylvania Dutch and Amish traditions.

This beautiful watercolor of a street scene in the small town of Ephrata Pennsylvania - located in Northern Lancaster County. 

So quaint and appealing with its fancy corbels on the porch roof, it screams 'Americana'!! Inspired by my love of the Victorian era, I just had to paint this grand beauty! 

The building in the foreground is "Sheldon's Frame and Gallery".

About the Materials

Watercolors:

  • The Paints used are ALL the highest quality pigments of a 'AA' or 'A' light-fast rating. I use only 'Artist Grade' watercolor pigments, mostly Winsor & Newton,  Holbein, and Schmincke watercolors. Having researched thoroughly the chemistry and qualities of watercolors pigments in the 1990's,  it was my decision was to eliminate all known non light-fast pigments from my palette. Doing so has dramatically reduced fading of my watercolors!

The Paper:

  • The Paper used is always the highest 'Artist Grade' either Fabriano or Arches professional watercolor paper. These are mould-made, 100% Cotton Rag Acid Free papers of either 140lb stretched or 300lb weight to prevent buckling.
