Fishing in the Cascades (Waterfall Lesson #26)
Expanded view of the cascades for the waterfall lesson. 18-1/2" x 15" Arches CP with extensive use of Daniel Smith's Watercolor Ground in both the rocks and water. Almost done, I might get back to this again later.

"Laughing Eyes" Updated
I removed the mid-ground by painting over it with Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground and starting over. I practiced painting weeds over and over before I tried it again. I still think it could be better, maybe not so busy, but at least I got rid of the purple grass!

Lesson #26 My Version: "Fishing in the Cascades"
It's been ages since I purchased this lesson, and I must admit I'm not following the instructions, but I wanted to put up my version. I used Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground on Fabriano 140 lb rough to see what kind of texture it would bring to the painting. It's different, so please don't compare min…

Oak Branch Finally Finished!
This started out as an experiment using Daniel Smith's watercolor ground to add texture to paper. Two years later, I decided to work on it again and enter it in the Amador County Fair (California) in the mixed media division. It won 2nd place over about 10 other entries! Surprised me. Matted size 10…

"Stagecoach Lady" Watercolor, 15"x 11.5" Fabriano CP
"Stagecoach Lady" - this is a portrait of a friend who works every summer as a volunteer in Wawona in Yosemite National Park, CA. She is now almost 90 and still works helping run the stagecoach that visitors can ride in.  She is known as "Stage Lady," and the sweetie-pie is one of the park ranger's…

"Laughing Eyes" Watercolor 9"x13.5" Fabriano CP
This is a portrait of the adopted son of my husband's cousin and his wife. Jackson is a joy and brings so much happiness to the family, so I wanted to capture his shining face in the portrait. He was about 4 in the reference photo, but the painting looks more like he looks now at 7 since we had just…

Evergreens without Green
Cretacolor watercolor pencils on Strathmore 140lb, some Coptic white opaque ink, some regular watercolor, too. I think I'm too impatient for colored pencils, watercolor or otherwise!

My Glass Palettes
The Corning "Counter Saver" is the perfect palette if you want something stable and perfectly flat. Watercolor never beads or runs away on the flat surface. I keep the containers there for identification as I do not have a system for where I put the colors.

Gold Country Fair entries, Sept. 2015
The last fair of 2015, for me. I couldn't go see the fair because the smoke from the California fires, but I was really happy with the results - a best of division for the Quilt and a best of show for the Peonies. I don't think I could ever do this again! I've just entered 7 paintings in Sacramento…
