The Big Tree

Watercolor on paper
16 x 12 in.
This place is on the outskirts of my town...very peaceful, where I could possibly paint plein air someday!! For now I have taken many snaps for reference. Even the last painting I posted was of this place.

Watercolor on paper
11 x 15 in.

This is a portrait of my sister's father-in-law. As usual I was attracted by the light falling on the face and the resultant depth.I must thank my nephew for taking such a nice photograph!
I have left the white of the paper to show through for the light, carefully painting around it.
