watercolor about 9 x 5.5 inches
This is from a photo of Lamplugh Glacier. It was painted on BFK printing paper.... I think it's the "heavyweight." After using this paper for my snake print, I tried painting on it and found it quite usable... in fact, very good. I'll be using it again for watercolor.
watercolor 6 x 6 inches
One day I was really frustrated with my efforts to find something to paint from my photos and I set up this still-life..... adding to the many from last month. I like doing these, but am so much more wanting to paint landscapes. Its either raining or snowing most days. I did go out in the car and started 2 small paintings of the Chilkats, but clouds came and covered them before I got too far along. That was over a week ago and the clouds are still there.
I started a larger than usual watercolor from photos that I've worked on, off and on. I pulled out my water soluble oils last week and finished one snow scene from a photo (not so good) and started another yesterday, painting from my back window. It seems I'm painting for the first time ever, like the learning curve has started over again.
I spent a few days last week matting all of my new paintings. One of these days I'm going to start trying to sell paintings on line....... something I've been saying for a long time. I don't know if any will sell, but it is worth a try.
