The following images are thumbnails, so if you want to see a larger image, just click on it and it will wormhole you to the bigger image.

 

These landscapes are all plein air, done on site and not from a photo or vivid imagination. Water colours are very unforgiving being just water on paper, so fixing screwups isn't always viable. You'd be surprised how many bushes and birds and such are really just a blob of paint that the artist had to somehow incorporate into the painting; either that or toss it.

 

 

The one on the left is Hog's Back Falls, and the other one is at the ... arboretum ... hope I spelled that correctly.       

 

 

 

 

   

The one on the left is from the falls at Carleton Place, and the other is the arboretum viewed from the parking lot.

Both these are from Colorado, the one on the left is The Big Red Rock in the desert west of Denver, something like that. It is huge, a state or national park where they have concerts and such. You are not allowed to go for a walk in this area, it is all marked off. I got busted by a park ranger becasue I wasn't on the 'allowed' path.

 

The other one is in Denver, where there is a little offshoot of a river, not sure of the name, but this was made by a sports store, a BIG one, so that people could try out their kayaks and other boats, it is a short little rapids that is very popular with the locals.

 

      

In San Diego there is a beach for dogs, called ... Dog Beach I guess. I'd go there and do wave studies in water colour. Waves are difficult in any medium!

These following few images show some of the stages the painting went through.

 

      

These illustrations are to give an idea as to how a painting developes, from early stages to the end stage.
