I use a limited palette, the typical warm/cool palette, which includes cadmium yellow light, cadmium yellow medium, cadmium red light, alizarine crimson, ultramarine blue, cerulean blue and titanium white.
Each of these colors has another additional color in it. Once you can identify the color, you will have better results when mixing. Following is a list of the paint colors with the additional color each has in it, also if it is cool or warm.

I'm focusing mainly on the red civil war-era courthouse because ...
1) It's a good enough challenge with lots of factors to consider, for plein air watercolor 2) It has sort of a cutesy character, although not a very ornate or complicated one. So most of my images lately are of the…Continue

I've been back every day to this spot to try and catch the light on the fields and the shadows on the hills..but they move so fast and the drawing is tricky..I go straight in drawing with my big long brush. I took my two sketches I did in the morning and together with a photograph did this...I've not painted like this before but I feel it's what I'm aiming at: tone and limited palette. There's still more work to be done.…Continue

Bay Trail Series: Paintout fund raiser to complete the trail along the lake shore, Lake Pend Oreille, Sandpoint, Idaho. The show is Friday, 5:30, Redtail Gallery. This is the largest for me, all are 16x20" and took about two hours each.
artiste, took the time to share a few highlights of an amazing Plein Air season that is yet to end, with the greater public.
I am working on a major article for publication in one of the larger Plein air publications on the topic of an almost insane indulgence in painting competitions this year. I am planning an email newsletter with updates and a great blog series full of insights, observations and emotional perseverance, connections with other artists and oh yes some great…Continue

I guess I'm not to great on blogging.... I just returned from spending 8/10 to 8/18 celebrating my Mom's 90th birthday in Denver with my family. We had lofty ideals of getting everyone out daily to do a bit of plein air. My sister and I each packed extra PA set ups for our siblings to use, Mom has her own. We celebrated her B'day with a picnic at Betasso Preserve in Boulder County. This is a beautiful area up by Nederland. We invited life long friends and family. We…Continue

I find that being with another artist that I invite to paint with me, is a valuable experience beyond the act of painting or discussing our paintings. Besides the obvious benefits of enjoying their company and sharing the experience, I enjoy the catalytic input that results. It doesn't necessarily have to do with painting, techniques, critiquing or comments about art. To me it is more about broadening my mind about everything. There is a level of communication that I experience during…Continue

June Shull and I painted up a storm in Cle Ellum all last week at the High Country Plein Air Festival. My huge 23x30" watercolor Yakima, won 2nd place and a Calendar award.

June set up with her feet in the water and did a fabulous oils of the river water and rocks.…Continue
