Carmel Trip Watercolor Paintings
Highland Fling 14 x 21
Painted on a perfect day on Point Lobos,no wind! It is of Carmel Highlands. I had the idea to make the painting look plaid because of the sharp shapes and clear colors on the ridge and the highland fling name. It was an interesting experiment as I usually paint things that are more rounded off.
Carmel Mission Ranch Morning 12 x16
This was painted from the porch of our room at the Carmel Mission Ranch Inn. It is Clint Eastwood's well located place to stay. It's a little rustic but perfect for our purposes. This was the morning fog lifting over the ridge and meadow and I am very pleased how with soft and majestic the ridge in the distance looks.
