This is watercolor on Arches paper.
I have done this same scene in variations, in oils and acrylics before, never a watercolor.
The scene was just outside of Branson Missouri, when I took a detour in the car to find this little pocket of creek and refections. Who would have thought I would be painting it in so many ways ten years later.
Anyway, here it is (again) , this is 12 x 16" unframed watercolor.

Heads up everyone.. There is going to be a wonderful art show held at the Steiner Ranch Steak House on May 4th 1-5pm
A select group of artists, including yours truly, will be showing their art at this show.
There will be a variety of painters, and one jeweler and sculptor will also have some great work on display.
So mark your calendars ( MAY 4th) ..this will be a truly fun show with a lot of talented artists .....come along, check it out!
5424 Steiner Ranch Blvd.
I have done this scene in pastels and oils before, and as I am about to teach a Waterscape in Watercolor Workshop (May 15th), I decided I needed a challenge. Why not?.
I did add a very small amount of gouache to this (opaque watercolor) just for more 'zap'..
Greens are not my favorites in a painting, and I think they can get too 'dead' looking without a few highlight complimentary colors.You know me, I LOVE color!

Our poor lakes and riverways in Texas are looking pretty sad as a result of the terrible drought over the years..
The above river is usually full of water,instead now all these rocks are visible.
It is still a very pretty area to paint although I have embellished quite a bit, using gouache as well as transparent watercolor in this painting.
This is a 12 x 16" unframed watercolor..

I just received this in a shipment from Australia, it was a painting I did many years ago and gave it to my sister. It is a large oil on canvas, beautifully framed.
My sister had it in her estate, and now it has come back to me.
I actually love this painting, dare I say so myself, but it is a typical ocean scene in Australia, painted from my imagination..
This is a 36.5 x 42.5" framed oil.
I would love it to go to a good home, so if you are interested please contact me.

This was one of the demos I did in yesterday's workshop.
I tweaked it a little today, but not much.
It's a 14 x 20" watercolor (unframed)
The title is dedicated my dear friend Sue after her recent and very sad loss.

Hi everyone, yesterday I taught another LANDSCAPE and FLORAL watercolor workshop and was asked by a few students if I would do a WATERSCAPE WORKSHOP.
With this request in mind, I did this small seascape this morning...
By the way I am scheduling the above WATERSCAPE WORKSHOP..SEASCAPES, WATERFALLS, STILL WATER..for May 15th if you are interested.
This is a 12 x 16" watercolor on arches paper (unframed)
I realized while I was painting it, I don't recall ever doing a seascape in pure watercolor.. I have done a lot of seascapes in the past in pastels, acrylics and oils, even watercolor and collage, but never a pure watercolor, so this was a challenge for the old brain.
Thank you to all those students who came yesterday.. It was great fun.
