This Artist is Back and Painting Watercolors!!

I'm challenging myself to improve my scenic watercolors.  It is so vast out there that it can be overwhelming.  I'm sure I'm not the first to be aware of that.  This past summer I've painted works up close, to get started, and further back as I get more confident.

I'm working with a different palette with more staining colors.

Than's Original Colored Pencil Artwork!

     After a lot of encouragement, Than completed a work of art from his own photograph.  It's wonderful!  On one youth outing with his church, Than took this photo.  He decided to do it in colored pencil.  We talked about composition, color temperature, values, texture and more.  What an accomplishment.  This allowed for further discovery on what subject to do next!  Well done, Than!
