These eucalyptus studies are wonderful. I especially like the use of this limited color palette. Inspiring work as always.

Erik,
I discovered your work about a year ago while searching for info on Gouache. Your work is strong with magnificent brushwork,and it took me over the edge into Gouache. Now I use it all the time combined with traditional watercolor. I visit your site often and continue to gain knowledge, thank you. My website is attached if you have a moment to view. You do a great inspirational service for the painting community.

Love the way you are able to control the light against the shadow. Almost as if it's glowing. Stunning work.
