Lincoln Gallery's National Show

Mesa Arch
I'm proud to announce that my watercolor, Mesa Arch was accepted into the Lincoln Gallery (Loveland, CO) National Show which opens March 31.  The opening is April 14, 2017 from 6-9 PM and the public is invited to attend.
I played with a new technique with this original watercolor.  I masked spaces and let the paint flow within each space. I wanted to keep the paint as fresh as possible so used very little to no glazing.  I also used a limited pallet which helps give the painting cohesiveness. The scene was inspired by the gorgeous view in Canyonlands National Park in Utah.  This painting is available for sale.

January 2017 newsletter

Every few months, I  send out an email of my latest art, shows and classes.  Here is the latest one.

This is an example of what I teach in my (solvent) free oil painting classes.  I taught my students how to look at composition and value first, then paint with  thinned transparent oxide red oil paint for an underpainting.  Below is the finished piece.  The inspiration was a view from Hungry Horse Reservoir in Montana.
