I made this painting during a V&V trip over a year ago and decided to repaint it along with a number of my other early oil paintings. I now try to "push" the color much further and also use much thicker paint.
This drawing of the Deepwood Estate in Salem was made with a 3Xo Rapidograph pen on Arches 140 Cold Press watercolor paper. This is very time consuming and I subsequently had to scan it at 1200dpi in order to capture the details on the digital file.

About a year ago ago I made a small WC Sketchbook using a sheet of Arches 140CP paper. Since I am not always very busy when working at the Art In The Valley Gallery, I decided to spend my time making small 5X7 sketches. I am using a watercolor set that I always take with me but rarely use. This image is based on a photo taken at a recent V&V trip.

Two weeks ago we were painting along the Albany riverfront. It was very cold and only a few painters showed up. I completed this painting after the paint-out. It was done entirely with a painting knife.
