Fire in Ojai – Daily Painting

Thursday, November 30th, 2006

“Fire in Ojai” – 11 in. x 7 in. Watercolor on 140# paper Yes, there is a theme this week in my painting – clouds and skies. This one came about for a few different reasons. 1) I was looking for a different kind of cloud to paint 2) I wanted some practice doing eucalyptus [...]

Arroyo Path – Daily Painting

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

Arroyo Path – Rainy Sky – 13.5 in x 10 in. – Watercolor on paper Another sky watercolor, this time a little closer to home. About five minutes from home, in fact, in the northern part of the arroyo that goes down through Pasadena. This painting is based on a photo I took at dawn [...]

Daily Painting – Asheville River

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006

French Broad River – 14.1 inches by 9.5 inches This painting represents a bit of a turning point for me, and one that I hope takes me into new and interesting directions. The painting is of the French Broad River above Asheville, North Carolina, from a monochrome picture more than 100 years old which I [...]

Chicken – Daily Painting

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Study of a chicken … 5″ x 6″ – gouache on recycled paper I thought the recycled paper worked well for this. In fact, the little bits of fiber in the paper reminded me of the sort of straw and dust found in barnyard environments and gave me a nice midtone to work against.

Pepper Trees – Daily Painting

Friday, November 17th, 2006

“Pepper Trees near Lake Piru” 7.5″ x 11″ Watercolor on 140# paper For sale Almost as common as eucalyptus are California’s pepper trees, which, in the summer, are heavily laden with pink peppercorns. These tall fluffy trees are especially common along highways, and scent the air with a spicy fragrance when the fallen peppers are [...]

Crest Pines

Monday, November 13th, 2006

“Crest Pines” 15″ x 11″ watercolor on paper Pines and summer wildflowers on the Angeles Crest – the newest in my trails of the San Gabriel series. This weekend, at two different watercolor demos held at Watercolor West and the National Watercolor Society, both demonstrating artists mentioned how they like to work in themes and [...]

Snowy Field – Painting a Day

Friday, November 10th, 2006

Snowy Field Watercolor on paper 5.5″ x 13.5″ An exploration in monochrome for a Wet Canvas Weekend Allmedia event. The challenge was to take a reference photo provided by Wendy/Sundiver and adapt it in some way to make it more interesting.There was no foreground in the ref photo, and no shadows. My solution was to [...]

Illo Friday “Clear” – Wild Stream

Wednesday, November 8th, 2006

SOLD “Wild Stream” 7.5″ x 11″ Watercolor on 140# paper Clean, clear, water – what a precious resource. Can anything match it for clarity and freshness? I did this painting today just for fun for some water practice, using a very limited palette of two blues, a red and a yellow. That’s about it. Oh, [...]

Yorkshire Pals – Daily Painting

Saturday, November 4th, 2006

11″ x 9″ Watercolor on 140# paper. Available. This was my (very) early morning project for Wet Canvas’ weekend drawing event, in which reference photos are provided to draw or paint from. One’s work or work in progress must be posted within 2 hrs of starting. Well, I had a dilemma. I liked parts of [...]

Something winged this way comes

Wednesday, November 1st, 2006

I am frustrated today because my Yahoo email is bouncing and every reactivation request I’ve put in is not working. I get error messages back that reassure me that Yahoo is working hard to upgrade its sites to serve me better and if I don’t hear anything after 4 hrs to get updates here (and [...]
