Recent Work + Workshop News 2014

Detail of a recent gouache painting on hot pressed board - 5" x 7"

' Lake in drought conditions with distant ruins '

Exploring modern themes with a classical point of view. As we need the rain here in California I couldn't ignore the recent imagery of parched reservoirs throughout the state and beyond. In this piece I used both Titanium white (gouache) and Chinese white (watercolor). The latter is much more translucent as a watercolor pigment than the opaque white gouache. It is worth combining and experimenting with these different mediums in one painting.
