Galloping Horses

I drew this black and white image of a galloping horse. Upon completing the art, I scanned the image. Using Photoshop Elements 10, I added some color to the bottom two images.  The effects are interesting and much better with color rather than just the black and white original version.

Orange Path

This clearing in the woods is rich in color. I began the painting with yellows and oranges over the entire background done wet in wet. Once the background dried, I layered in the distant woodlands in subdued greens. As I moved forward, the greenery and trees become more intense and I really like the orange on the path. The tree shadows were added last and made this painting "pop". My final strokes were adding "whites" on the trees and grasses by pulling off the existing watercolors.

Night Lights

This night scene somewhere over snow-covered mountains is highlighted by the aurora borealis which lights the sky. This quiet scene typifies a cold winter night that could be someplace like Canada. Wherever it is these lights make for a beautiful setting.

Snow At Sunset

As the sun lowers in the western sky, brilliant colors bounce off the snowy landscape and a lonely barn. The upcoming night will be cold because the skies have cleared which will allow the temperatures to lower. Luckily, we do not live where we get any snow. Scenes like this are only nice when you are toasty inside your home--and not having to drive somewhere. FOR SALE, 11" x 14" original, matted, $40, $5 shipping, use PayPal. Ink and watercolor.
