One of the new larger sky paintings. This one is sparkly in person. It is one I like quite a bit. Not sure what else to say about it! It sort of needs a bigger page for it to show up....
Below this is another large one...(what I call large is like 20 something x like 18 something or so...). I am not fond of this one. I wanted to do a night sky but as you see it just turned into something of a mess. Below The Mess (my title for it) is a small 6x4 sky that I sort of like, except the watercolor spread thing is a bit too obvious for me.
For many years I painted. Then I stopped. These paintings started out a sort of experiment. Even when I did paint I never did watercolor. I spent a lot of time trying to be Van Gogh painting oil. Most of the paintings were unfinished. I decided to start using watercolor based only on the recollections of what my father had tried to teach me years ago. The newer paintings are the more recent. If you go back to the beginning you can see the early stumbling ones.
