Quiet Time


Don't you just love the beach in the evening--most of the people have gone home--even the seagulls and seabirds seem to have quieted down for the night.  There's a warm glow in the sky, reflecting onto the beach path.  For me, it's the best time of the day at the ocean.

 This is a small watercolor landscape, 6 1/2" x 9 1/2", painted on Lana Aquarelle paper.  It's really done from a fairly limited palette, keeping the overall tone of the painting "quiet".

Evening Glow


 "Evening Glow" is another serene, moody landscape done in watercolor on Arches paper.  The image size is 6 x 12", creating a long, narrow format which helps lend tranquility to the piece.  I enjoy doing this type of work because it's part memory, part imagination, and part surprise due to the capricious nature of watercolor.
