A newish watercolor sketch and a few process shots.
First step, pencil sketch (chicken scratch?)
Laying down watercolor paint. I purchased a new set of watercolors recently that I’ve been beyond happy with. Highly pigmented, affordable & in pans! I have a fairly strong dislike for watercolor paint in tubes.
More layers of paint.
A close up. I used a bit of colored pencil, the paper lends an interesting texture.
The final piece, approx 8.5″x11″
Goldfish in water[color]. Not sure if this is finished yet. Process photos after the jump.
This little space whale painting was submitted for the ArtPM Challenge at Buoy Gallery in Kittery, Maine. (If you’re local to the area, the show opening is tonight!)
January already? I’ve blasted through any resolutions I might have had. Except for making more time for painting + drawing. I have lots of acrylic paint and large canvases hanging around my studio that I’ve been trying to work with. I’ve realized two things: I prefer smooth papers and boards to the texture of canvas & while acrylic paint was once my favorite medium to work with.. I think that might be changing.

I’m not ready to concede that it’s almost winter just quite yet — so here’s a new autumn landscape painting & a few photos of the piece while in progress. Read on to see more.
Watercolor on coldpress paper. 6″x9″ish
I’ve been working on a few watercolor paintings inspired by the leaves changing here in New Hampshire. I’m working from photos that I’ve taken over the past few weeks – mostly from walking trails around the Seacoast area in NH. I’m planning on posting a few more photos from these trips in the next couple of days.
The leaf study painting above is watercolor on 7″x9″ cold press paper.
