Peabody Construction

9" x 12" watercolor and ink on 140lb. Fabriano paper

This was done from an on-site pencil sketch at a local construction site.
The tractor/digger looked rather lonely among the brush, but
made for a nice contrast vs. the natural setting.

Paper Stand

22" x 15" watercolor on 300lb. Arches
A park-side view of a lake with a city in the distance. Please forgive the poor perspective on the foreground newspaper stand. I see I was off by a good bit. Oh well, practice makes perfect (so THEY say!)
Thanks for looking.

20" x 30" oil on Yupo paper
An abstract view of an old Roman aqueduct. Yupo paper is a slick-surfaced paper
that can take all media. I've used it before for watercolor and acrylic, now I wanted to
try it with oils. Most of this was done by applying thin layers of paint via the knife.Posted by Picasa

Morning Stroll

15" x 22" watercolor on 300lb. Arches
An early morning walk with the trusty canine. This is the
first painting on 300lb. paper in a long time. I'm also getting
a bit more brave and working up to more full-size sheets.Posted by Picasa
