Into the Light

Into the Light
8x10" Original Watercolor

Another from our visit to Eastern Washington.
I watched as Canadian Geese swam up the river into the light.

Along the Muddy Banks

Original Watercolor

Inspired by the changing spring light as I explored around Palmer Lake.

I took this opportunity to play with line and texture in watercolor.

Plein Air at Palmer Lake

Clouds gathering at Split Rock
Original Watercolor

While my family was out on the lake fishing, I painted this at Split Rock day park.
Good thing I had the keys to the car, because it only took a short while for a big squall to come in with high winds and lots of rain. Thirty minutes later, it was partly sunny again, but still very cold.
