Edgefield Winter Morning - watercolor

watercolor, 2018
available, 8"x10"

      I'd been sitting on this reference photo for a couple years because I wasn't sure if I could get it believable. I'm glad I finally dove in. It turned out to be one of my favorite landscapes. And, it's quite appropriate for the winter storm my area is dealing with now.

Portland Bill - watercolor

watercolor, 2017
available, 11"x15"

      Just a quick landscape of the Portland Bill Lighthouse and a couple resting boats. I tried phthalo blue for the sky. In mass tone I hate the phthalo colors. But, when applied fairly thin, phthalo blue makes a nice sky. I'm also happy with how the ocean and surf worked -- and how easy it was. I usually struggle with believable surf.

Tulips - gouache

gouache, 2017
available, 11"x15"

      Starting the new year off with a little still life I kicked out one weekend. I think it worked out a lot better than I expected. I'm not quite as confident with gouache as I'd like to be. But I'm getting there.
