Two 2018 Paintings

I thought I would post my watercolors from the paint-out locations from the last two Saturdays in 2018.  These were both done pretty quickly.  I was having trouble finding my subject in South Pasadena when I noticed a pretty tree with yellow leaves and some potted plants by the sidewalk.  I didn't have too much time to paint by then so it was done quickly.  And last Saturday we were at a park in Sierra Madre.  I was late arriving and it was cold.  The wonderful trees and bright green lawn looked fun to paint.  Unfortunately, it was pretty cold to be sitting for an hour or so to paint.  Another "quickie".  Hoping to improve my painting and of course paint more in 2019!

  1. I subscribe to your blog along with many others and the posts come into my email. I try to learn from other artists. I am always surprised how trees don't phase you. I kind of avoid them or only do them when necessary but you just dive in to the most tree-filled scenes without fear and get a great result.

    1. Thank you for such a nice comment Tom. I try to learn from other artists too. It's cars that I tend to avoid!
