I'm back to playing with watercolor. Out of all mediums, it is the most portable one, other than pencil/pen drawing. I have two to post today- a painting of the lotus leaves at the Chinese Garden in Portland and a quick sketch of the countryside from this past weekend.

On a sunny day I went for a walk in a late afternoon and noticed this scene. The sun was dropping, but the last rays created a beautiful warm glow on the grass and weeds growing on the edges of the creek. I started with a simple block in, trying to be mindful of the atmospheric effects to keep the background recede into the distance.

Today I decided to do another rendition of the Japanese maple, now in watercolor. The maple is probably one of the most fotographed trees in Portland, Oregon- it is old and beautifully trimmed. The maple grows above a pond with green water and fish. I think it is one of the most beautiful sights to see in the fall.
