New Paintings and Events

I painted several small seascapes recently, each one is just 4"x6". The size of a postcard. Each painting is just $49, including domestic shipping. Every now and then I take a little break and paint a few little gems like these. They are great warm-up exercises before I start on large work, and they are such fun to work on. The pad of 4x6 watercolor paper that I'm using was a gift from my friend Lori at Wayne Art Supply and Framing, and it has inspired me paint a whole series of these small paintings. This size is like jewelry for art collectors -- they are wonderful affordable accessories that can be displayed anywhere and anytime.

This photo shows my drawing, and the reference photo for one of my paintings.

This photo shows my painting about halfway done, with the sky painted and most of the water values layered.
