Ripples 14 x 12

Rippled 14 x12

This is more realistic than usual for me.
I worked on it yesterday and am letting it sit while evaluating that big white area.
I am trying to put more light in my paintings and am wondering if that also means more realism.

"Mount Diablo, Earliest Spring" California Watercolor Association Guest Artist Demonstration




 Mount Diablo , Earliest Spring 14 x 14

Getting started

A black and white version of a painting that had summer colors and a small postcard of a different painting from the same place,I wanted to use it to paint a spring version.
My talking points, on my board right next to the painting.
My palette on the easel( I use a horizontal Richeson Steele easel)

Thanks to the California Watercolor for taking the pictures and for inviting me!

Two Cloud Paintings



Clouds Over Sullivan's Island 10 x 12




Passing Storm14 x 14

Painting these reminds me of painting the ocean.
 Our drought here in California made me want to paint these mountainous clouds .
 These were both painted in the studio from photos I took in Charleston SC.
