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!

Hello Nathan,

Great work! Your sketches bring me places man, thank you for sharing!

I really want to see the Angeles Forest now, it looks like a beautiful place.

Could I ask if you could give any advice on how you manage the amount of water you use in your paints?

Thanks DP. I do go easy on the water because my last strokes of thick paint tend to be dry brushed. So my initial washes are scumbled on so that they'll dry quickly. Good luck!

Its great advice Nathan, I'm having more control with the layers not mixing up together so much.

Thank you for your generosity Nathan!
