I was so into starting a large watercolor painting as well as an oil painting that I completely forgot about painting anything else. So here is another page from the journal of my trip to Italy in 2005.
Another page of studies today from a a couple of photo.. taken from an airplane... just as we lift up from the Juneau airport on our way home. I started an oil painting and will start a watercolor from these.
A page of studies for a larger painting.... I still don't have a composition I'm satisfied with. This is from an old slide of Muir Glacier, probably taken in the 80's. I doubt that it can even be seen from this spot now as it has been receding.
Two little studies for today. These are from an old slide that I took from a boat trip in Glacier Bay in the 80's. I'm pretty sure I did a larger painting from the slide years ago. I was thinking to try one using oils.
Outside my window again, today about 3 pm. As you see, the snow is gone. It has been clear and bitterly cold outside. I'm lucky to have such a beautiful site out my studio window.This one is done on a cream colored watercolor paper. I used a little gouache on the spruce.
I've spent the last 2 days printing about 75 Year of the Rabbit woodblock prints. They are done with watercolor, so I'm going to let this be my posting for today. These are for a Baren Forum exchange. This is the 10th year I've participated in the exchange. This year I've done them on time and have enough to send to friends as well as the other participants.
Yahoo! I"m off to a good start here as I've succeeded in painting a little something every day for 9 days. As I've got lots and lots of little paintings from years before I started this blog I'm going to take a day off once a week and put one of these old ones. This one's from 1996.
