  • Plein Air Watercolor Survival Guide

    When plein air painting , one of the most enjoyable and facile medias I've found to work with has to be watercolors. Hands down. The supplies are minimal, you can paint quickly and move from place to place making sketches of what catches your interest, and the paintings dry so quickly that there's...

  • 3 Techniques Moved Me to the Head of the Class

    At least I feel that way. I set myself a goal this week—I wanted to learn a few new watercolor painting techniques because I feel like when I contemplate working in watercolor, I only know the "first gear" approaches. I feel like Tim Saternow ( West 20th St from 10th Ave , 26 x 40, 2008...

  • What's the Wisp?!

    Elton , 11 x 14, mixed media on gesso board, 2011. Yesterday was an interesting day for me.

  • Shrink Your Painting—Does It Still Work?

    Philadelphia Story II--Spires by Sarah Yeoman, watercolor painting, 14 x 20. Using Linear Perspective in Your Art I don't mean literally shrink it, but if you take a photo of your painting and reduce it to thumbnail size and it still holds together compositionally, you've got a good piece on...

  • Painting for the (Trash) Bin

    The aim of being an artist is the ability to create. But with this desire of wishing to constantly achieve wonderful paintings that can be framed or exhibited comes an enormous amount of pressure on our shoulders. We expect to always succeed in our goal to capture a scene or subject on paper or canvas...

  • Watercolor posting

    Hello, I am a new member. I started back painting when I retired in 2011. Many years ago I painted in oils, but the smells really gave my sinus a fit. I finally gave that and many years later I started playing around with photo manipulation and digital art. Over time that just made me miss the feel of...

  • "Fire in the Hole"

    One of the many benefits of living in Albuquerque are the hot air balloons. This watercolor shows the crew team inflating the envelope early one morning. My center of interest is the flame from the propane burner. I used 300 lb Arches rough. Matted the painting will fit a 28 x 22 inch frame.

    Another musician that we saw as we walked the New Orleans French Quarter last October. It seemed unusual to find a flute player on the street. This watercolor was done on 140 lb Arches stretched over a sheet of gator board. Matted and framed it will measure 28 x 22 inches.

    A memory of the French Quarter in New Orleans - this watercolor was painted on 140 lb Arches stretched over gator board - the painting is about 21 x 17 - when framed it will be 28 x 22 - Mardi Gras beads were added to help it look more like New Orleans
