Objects And Shadows

I sketched my image on the watercolor paper then randomly stroked watercolor washes on the background. I used some mystic to blot out the color. Because I could see my image, I could add color where I wanted. I used various Sharpies to define my objects then added bold black shadows. Ink and watercolor.

Bristlecone Pine Tree

Bristlecone pine trees are found high in rugged mountain areas and are one of the oldest trees known to man. Ancient bristlecone pine forests exist in several western mountain ranges but the oldest trees live in California's White Mountains. These trees thrive only in the most brutal of environments from 10,000-11,000 foot elevation in areas exposed to bitter cold and winds. Ink and watercolor

A Mission In Capistrano

This serene scene shows a pleasant view of Mission San Juan Capistrano located in southern California. The foreground trees with shade paint a beautiful frame work for the mission in the background. Ink and watercolor.

Bright Spring Day

Colorful mountains and bright green leaves look extra bright as the sun comes out after a spring rainstorm. A few puffy clouds remain but there will be no rain on this colorful landscape for the rest of this day.

This painting was purchased by our friends, John and Jean Hanson who saw it in my office when we hosted a wine party in May. Thank you both!!! Ink and watercolor. SOLD
