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!

Pierce Point II

This is the second watercolor of the old ranch at the Pt Reyes National Seashore, painted on the plastic surface called Yupo,  This smooth surface  completely determines the paint application and it is barely controllable. It is an exciting process and the result is fantastical rather than the usual painterly approach which is more conventional and reportorial.
It looks like I must have been drinking lots of champagne while I was painting this, but I assure you it was a slow and deliberative process !
