Newport Vignette

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

This is just a quick and loose sketch based upon scenes from our Newport paintout day. I don’t know why, sometimes I like the fast and loose ones better than the ones I toil over for hours. But I just can’t bring myself to ‘dash off’ something I intend for a show. Which is the [...]

California Farmhouse

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

California Farmhouse – Aprox 9″ x 12″ – watercolor While I continue to work on my big painting (yes, I finally put brush to paper yesterday on that snowy white sheet) here is a painting I did a few weeks ago as a practice using warm and cool colors alternatively. The actual scene was rather [...]

Procrastination vs. Incubation

Monday, May 28th, 2007

“Market Flowers” – watercolor on paper – About 8″ x 6″ – Fabriano Artistico 140# cold press I’m working on a big painting project right now – a full sheet watercolor that incorporates most of the different techniques I regularly know and use and a few new ones. It’s an ambitious project and I’m dedicated [...]

Casita Del Arroyo

Saturday, May 26th, 2007

Casita Del Arroyo – 7.5 x 10 (cropped) in Raffine sketchbook This weekend I’m working pretty intensely on a couple of paintings – still in the planning stages – so I’m posting this sketchbook page painted about ten days ago at the Casita Del Arroyo in Pasadena. You can just see the top of the [...]

Huntington Lilypond

Friday, May 25th, 2007

Lily Pond Sketch – a small portion of a water lily pond at Huntington Gardens – painted on location last Tuesday in my Raffine Sketchbook. Most of the lilies were white but there was one plant that sported a magenta/alizarin colored bloom. I saw this exercise as a way to just capture some loose colorful [...]

Cobb Estate – Hazy Morning

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

Cobb Estate – Hazy Morning 15″ x 22″ watercolor on Arches paper – half sheet Today our paintout group returned to the Cobb Estate at the top of Lake Street in Pasadena where a light morning haze hung over the San Gabriels cast a veil of warm light over the scene. My primary goal in [...]

Huntington Gardens Jacaranda

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

Huntington Jacarandas – 9 x 12 – Raffine sketchbook The Best Laid Plans of Artists oft go awry (to paraphrase Bobby Burns.) Wendee and I arrived at the Huntington today and before leaving we both checked the website and discovered that the only way one is permitted to paint in the gardens is if you [...]

Blue Cove

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

“Blue Cove” 9 x 12 watercolor A few things I was experimenting with: lost and found edges, limited color scheme, interlocking edges, oblique forms, use of reflections, using suggestive brushwork rather than painting every little leaf and bush, using strong value patterns and so on. This afternoon I’m looking forward to a paintout at a [...]

Sunstruck Rock – Daily Painting

Thursday, May 17th, 2007

Sunstruck Rock 9.5″ x 7″ watercolor on paper

Flintridge Eucs – Daily Painting

Wednesday, May 16th, 2007

“Flintridge Eucalyptus” 11″ x 15″ watercolor on Arches paper SOLD This morning’s plein air outing took us to the beautiful home of one of the members of our group. There were literally so many views to paint that I had a hard time choosing one, but I finally settled on this perspective on their neighbor’s [...]
