My other 9"x12" entry; a window scene from Charleston, SC.

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

One of my two entries in the 9"x12" show at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center.  The reception is December 3, 2010.  An interesting idea, all entries must fit in a 9'x12' envelope and be mailed to the FW Community Arts Center.  Everything is for sale for $100.00.  Check out the site:

This is one of the two paintings I did on the windows of Charleston, SC.  This is a 30'x22' on 140 LB Arches.  I gessoed the paper and I did not stretch it.  I was able to pick up the paper and control the drips without worrying about being attached to my board.  The watercolor does handle different than what is expected on this surface.  The gesso was diluted so as not to be too stiff or crack.

Another image from Laguna Beach

A 10'x14' on Arches 140lb paper.
A wonderful place to visit in California.  Before the wedding in Laguna Beach this past summer, I noticed a lot of wonderful images to paint.  Laguna Beach is still a popular area for artists today. There are several galleries in the area which are worth a visit.
