Mango and knife study

Wednesday, September 27th, 2006

A watercolor sketchbook study in preparation for an oil painting. This sketch is 10″ x 7.25″ I bought the mango last week, attracted by its shape and color, but it wasn’t quite ripe yet. As it aged, it changed in wonderful ways, developing new speckles and coloration. My patient husband looks at it longingly. Are [...]

Santa Barbara Botanic Garden

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

Watercolor – 11 x 15 cold press paper – plein air at the Santa Barbara CA Botanic Garden for Native Plants Today we took a drive up to Santa Barbara to scout a location for a work project, and my dear husband suggested I turn it into a painting day as well. I had never [...]

Geranium way (sketch)

Saturday, September 23rd, 2006

Another fast and rough sketch in the 9 x 12″ Raffine… in preparation for doing another painting in watercolor or oils. This one was painted with a half inch flat and a #12 round. Late afternoon on a tropical California side street. In fact, it’s right next door to this house Capistrano Fence which I [...]

Sycamore Grove

Friday, September 22nd, 2006

Yesterday I got my first Raffine sketchbook by Lana, recommended by Lin Frye, so I decided to give it a test drive. The 9 x 12″ paper is very thick and slightly absorbent, and I’d say it takes a wet wash pretty well without bleeding through the back side of the paper. There was only [...]

Eaton Canyon Abstract

Thursday, September 21st, 2006

This was one of the other watercolor sketches that I did on our paint out day last Tuesday. (Compare with the other sketch – scroll down.) It was toward the end of the morning and I just grabbed a smaller piece of Fabriano to experiment on with more calligraphic brushwork. I had no expectations which [...]

Plein air Eaton Canyon

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

Watercolor on 140# paper … 9″ x 10″ Today our paint out group went to Eaton Canyon Nature Area in Altadena, CA … a new place where I had not painted before. In the early fall some of the trees were starting to show tinges of brown and gold, and the hills were brown from [...]

Fields of Gold

Sunday, September 17th, 2006

11″ x 11″ Mixed media, watercolor and pastel. Unframed. SOLD Well, I have finally decided to take the plunge and list something on eBay. Thanks to all the friends who have written me and given me the push to make it happen. Prompted in part by the recent Illustration Friday theme of Farm, which I [...]
