This year I started teaching one day workshops. Each workshop covered a different aspect of watercolor painting. How to apply glazes and a color value study were a couple of examples. At the end of the workshop the ladies left with new skills and a good nearly completed watercolor painting. They really enjoyed themselves as did I. I am looking forward to teaching other workshops in the fall. If this interests you let me know by using my contact page. Continue reading
I did these two Elk paintings on different days. I call this kind of painting “Fast and Furious.”
I had just completed a commission piece and wanted to loosen up and have some fun.
I completed these pieces in three hours, start to finish.
I have started a couple new paintings recently. One of them is a painting of Orchids. I enjoy using the bright colors that bring the flowers to life. I received such positive comments on “My Girlfriends Boots” that I have started another boot painting. I hope you enjoy them.
I am always trying new things to improve my skills and artistry. These paintings are done on masa paper which is a type of rice paper. To begin I get the paper very wet than crinkle it which breaks up the fibers. Than I use ink and watercolors for the painting. Because the paper is so wet the paint bleeds through to the other side. I than added to the back side create a scene on that side also. I am still working to improve and complete this one.
