Can't Sit Long

I noticed this passenger early in the flight. He would stand up for about 10 minutes and sit back down for a while before standing again. He probably had a back problem. His face was interesting so I did a quick sketch.

Oakland Bound Passenger

This was a fellow passenger en route to Oakland, California. He fell asleep and of course I painted him. ACEO trading cards and a watercolor travel set are great ways to sharpen ones skills and kill some time during a flight.

California Pasture

We were exploring the bay portion of the Point Reyes National Seashore and came upon this beautiful scene. Of course I had to take numerous photos. This is the first attempt at painting this image.

Into The Fog Studio Version

Reading blogs is one of my favorite things to do. That is how I found out about the new Shizen pastel paper. I am already a fan of their watercolor paper. I used the plein air image below as inspiration.

On The Way

I like to exercise my brain by painting the landscape as it flashes by in a car. I take a mental picture and paint it on an ACEO trading card ground. I then explore that mental snapshot in larger watercolors, pastels, oil and graphite drawings.

Inspired by Fog

I was searching for a painting to show to a client yesterday and came upon yet another painting of this tree from a few years back. This is this years version with it surrounded by fog. I was experimenting with the new Arches paper for oil paints.

Jug Handle Panoramic

Pam gave be a gift card from Dick Blick's for my birthday. I have to go by that store each visit. I bought two panoramic watercolor blocks and some square format watercolor blocks for this trips paintings.

This is a quick drawing of my brothers wife Hope. She did me the honor of posing for me during my last visit to Commerce, Texas.
