Mission Dolores Dome

Mission Dolores is located in San Francisco, California and was founded in 1776. I have drawn and painted one of the domes of this mission. First, I drew a semi-detailed image of the dome in pencil. After, I used an Ultra Fine Line Sharpie over the pencil draft. Then I came in with the washes starting with the loose sky and clouds. Adding watercolor washes over the structure area was done last. Ink and watercolor.

Beyond The Trees

Very simple painting of a view of snow-covered mountains as seen thru the greenery of pine trees and shrubs. This scene is typical of a view of the Sierra Nevada mountains looking eastward from Auburn, California. Watercolor.

Abandoned Structures

Old structures dominate this secluded, very colorful valley. I like the lonesome, isolated feel of this painting. Maybe it is a place I would like to visit to do nothing but relax, eat, sip wine and paint. Ink and watercolor.

Mt. Whitney California

This is an image of my latest commission done in December 2012. During my last art show in November, a women asked if I did commissions similar to the two mountain images I had on display. She contacted me later and had me do this painting of Mt. Whitney which is located in the southern part of California. The gift was for her mother-in-law for Christmas who had climbed this mountain. 
Ink and watercolor. SOLD
