12 JULY, 2017

I’ve been working with water color for the past few weeks to determine if it is a viable plein air replacement for acrylic I normally use.  My problem with acrylic is the cleanup which must always be done thoroughly on-site. If left to dry on brushes they become chisels instead.

Water color, however, is tricky.  I am slowly learning how to manipulate it and use its best features.  The photos below are a few of my test pieces.  These are based based on work done at a friend’s place overlooking Holmes Harbor, Washington.  The weather was beautiful and I hope to go back for more.

As these were painted, a number of Eagles and Red Tail Hawks passed over. Unusual, I think, for the hawks to hang around in eagle country but there they were.
