Autumn is my favorite time of year. Today is my 64th birthday, and I can remember many birthdays when I was out painting on location in places like Yosemite, when I would schedule my vacation time to the end of October. As I look outside in my front yard here in Georgia, the leaves on the trees are all turning color…

The weather was terrible and I didn't get many opportunities to get out. Here are some studies I managed to get done. Most of them are experiments with my new Pan Pastels. The jury's still out on whether this will be a medium I can embrace; it's still a bit dusty and I need a mask indoors, and the wands, like brushes, are never as satisfying as holding the medium directly in my hand.

In the high country of upper Kittitas County in Washington state the fall colors are a feast for the eyes.

Recently, I tried painting watercolor on Ampersand 'Aquabord.' This is textured clay pressed onto a rigid surface, like masonite. I worked en plein air, to see how it would perform under a hot, sunny sky. Hmmm. Took getting used to.
First, I prepared the clayboard surface by simply brushing clear water on it.
The "yin" process was fun: I could re-wet a challenging shape and just tilt the board back and forth for lovely, loose color rhythms. On the dried…Continue

I've painted on-site for over 18 years. As essential as my passport/ID, my hand-made watercolor journal, pens, small palette, & brush are what I pack first. I also carry a Niji water brush if water & cup are not easily available.
I leave my pencil & eraser, though, for drawing in permanent ink means I'm recording with conviction. Erasing isn't an option; I might lose that fleeting light and shadow.
I often draw with a fine-tip Sharpie in "coconut"…Continue
