B. Maroney - watercolor

available, 8"x10"

      I finally got Boney to sit for a portrait. In spite of its name, watercolor lends itself pretty well to monochrome paintings.

      Happy Halloween!

Tybee - watercolor

watercolor, 2018
available, 11"x15"

      This somewhat loose landscape of the lighthouse on Tybee Island in Georgia is based on a photo I took back in March. I changed the color of the small structure at the base of the lighthouse (I think it's the entrance). It's really the same dark gray/black that's on the lighthouse itself. But, I thought it looked better matching the other buildings. It's red roof helps draw the eye into the lighthouse as the focal point.

Forgotten - watercolor

watercolor, 2018
available, 11"x15"

      I finally got a rusty truck in a landscape in which I'm happy with both aspects. The truck worked out very nicely. And, I'm very happy with the field and barn in the background. There's a pretty good blend of looseness and detail, combined with some nice aerial perspective to give the effect I was after. I'll call it a win.
