The Hill Behind Work - watercolor

watercolor, 2018
available, 11"x15"

       I painted this from a photo I took during our January snow storm. It's the view out an emergency exit near my desk at work. Pulled the masking fluid out for this one. I almost never use it. But, sometimes it's better than adding in highlights with white gouache after the fact.

Tour Guide Rev - watercolor

watercolor, 2017
available, 11"x15"

      This was from a quick grab shot of an owner/guide of a golf cart tour we took around Southport, NC last July. He was quite a character and made the tour much more than just a history lesson. I'm very happy with the multitude of shadows and color shifts in this one. Some of those color shifts in his skin tone fought me at every step.

       This is a commission I did back in December meant as a gift for my sister's boss. I was surprised at how quickly this one came together, somewhere around 6-7 hours.
