Miniature

Thought I would show the little minis that I have been painting.  They
were fun to do, so I had a workshop on them with my students.
I think they enjoyed them too.

Just because a painting is small does not mean it takes less time to paint.

Sounds of Silence

Watercolor
14" x 21"
landscape

I love painting the snow....or should I say...not painting the snow.  In watercolor, the snow is the white of the paper.  It is not painted.  The blues are the shadows that are the reflection of the sky.  It takes some planning on using the whites of the paper to your best advantage.  Enjoy....

More Shades of Gray

watercolor
14" x 21"
landscape

I decided to give this another try.  I wanted to keep it in a high keep value key.  This looks liek it was painting in black paint, but actually I used Neutral Tint, cerulean blue, burnt sienna, and some other blue.  lol.
