At the Coast

5" x 7" watercolor on paper in Moleskine sketchbook

Here is a scene alone the dunes on an eastern coastline. The storm clouds overhead loomed as the rains began to fall.

Well, this will be my last entry for 2007. Since starting this blog in March, I've had over 2500 viewers. Thanks to all who stopped by. Come back for an even bigger 2008!Posted by Picasa

Across Lee's Bridge

5" x 7" watercolor on paper in Moleskine sketchbook
This is a view across a river and bridge to the hills beyond. I'm trying out a new tube of Winsor and Newton manganese blue. You can see this intense color in the tree shapes on the right hand side of the painting. This color has wonderful granulation properties. I'll enjoy experimenting with it!Posted by Picasa

North Rim

12" x 9" watercolor on watercolor canvas
Yet another for the 'Winter 2007' collection. I enjoy working
on this Fredrix watercolor canvas. Corrections are very easy in that even
the staining colors do not absorb into the canvas, so wiping out and painting
over is a snap.Posted by Picasa

3 Christmas Cards

5" x 7" watercolor on paper - Moleskine sketchbook.
A quicky, loose sketch of three cardinals with a "patch on patch" background.
This is something Frank Webb does with many of his fine backgrounds. The secret to pulling
it off successfully is keeping the 'patches' very close in value.
Happy Holidays, everyone!! Posted by Picasa
