Copper Kettle / Study

Color! The richness and variety of the orange in the kettle, fabric and flowers are complimented by the blue green of the foliage. To my eye this is irresistible!

Eucalptus Trees in the Presidio

This past weekend I participated in an event called a  "Paint-Out" in the Presidio, sponsored by the California Watercolor Association in conjunction with the 41st National Exhibition being held there this summer. It was fun!  The day was sparkling and everyone was energized and feeling ready for the adventure. You are given a specific time and theme and then you're on your own...
I painted this scene of the light coming thru a dense wall of eucalyptus trees creating a backlight on the young cypress trees planted in front of a typical Presidio Victorian.
