Arroyo Path – Daily Painting

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 earlier this year when we were having so much rain. A storm was moving in and we were dodging raindrops the whole time we were there. Somehow I think it would have been difficult to do a watercolor under those conditions – with that much humidity in the air it would have taken forever for the paper to dry to do the harder edges. In such circumstances a camera in a plastic bag makes a good companion.

  2. I really look forward to each sky you do, Karen. Not only are they beautiful, but one can learn so much from watching how you get there.

  3. Karen,
    I am thoroughly enjoying your watercolors! these last two paintings have such a nice loose feeling.

  4. You’ve got that white storm cloud on top of the mountains perfectly. I guess it’s the contrast between clean white and the dark brooding sky above it, with just a tiny ggrey shadowing. Very well done.
