Welcome!

My sketchbook studies come from a wide variety of times and places both local and abroad. I like to keep them small (roughly 3"x 5") and quick (30 minutes give or take), I paint with watercolors and gouache (materials list for you in the sidebar). Enjoy!

A demo for you this week. This is watercolor and gouache in a heavyweight craft paper sketchbook. The location is Towsley Canyon Creek in the Santa Clarita Valley, northwest of LA.




















The finish is softer with more glazing than I usually do, I tend to preserve the brushwork. But getting the simple masses of color was more important to me in this case.
