Over the Sea 25 + Bog Forest Study

                                                          watermedia on Yupo 20x16

This was my demonstration painting I did at the Lincoln City Artists' Studio Association. The Sitka Center asks its residents to do some sort of community outreach. I contacted them and inquired about doing a demo with a casual class to follow. They were agreeable. As I`ve done many times elsewhere, I showed them a complicated mixed watermedia technique that allows for more versatility. Yupo was the 'paper' and I explained why one would go through so much trouble. Or why I do.
                                              watercolor and water soluble graphite 12x12

I`m working on a large oil painting of this boggy area close to the estuary. I did one of the same place in 2010. The depth, reflections,  textures and sense of vitality come together beautifully in this tiny spot.

I sure would have liked to see that demonstration and hear that discussion. I bet it's good.

The top painting looks like the edge of forever. (That was what popped right into my mind when I saw ut.)

Love you paintings you do of sea and sky.

This is sure a powerful piece. I agree with Libby... it looks like it could go on forever.

I would have liked to see your demo and I know the group got a lot of information and beauty from watching. Love that black and white!
