A few new Watercolors
In between my blogging and my kids’ story book, I’ve somehow managed to get a few more landscapes in. Especially since my painting group started again last fall.
These first two are quick (~ 1 hour) sketches. These scenes are from Gatineau Park, from the cross-country ski trails.
From a pure laziness point of view, I like winter scenes, because it involves less painting (i.e. you have to leave lots of white). The down side, though, you have to know WHERE to leave the white. (It’s really easy to screw up a winter watercolor painting if you’re not careful).
This next scene is from Alaska, between Homer and Anchorage. Alaska is awesome. You can see glaciers like this right from the side of the road.
This next one you might recognize. It’s from a photo I posted last October, from Upstate New York. I couldn’t resist the brilliant yellow colors;.
Finally, here’s one from my summer vacation, at Neys Provincial Park. The North Shore of Superior always fascinates me…it’s so untamed and rugged. And cold. This was Labor Day weekend, and you can see the leaves were already starting to change.
