Watercolor Weekends - Aspen Grove
7x5in watercolor on Strathmore Bristol.
Yes - we have aspens here in
Southern New Mexico and they are
only a couple of hours away in Ruidoso...
the same area we have skiing.
The colors were not
as brilliant this year so I focused
on the bush at the back for a bit of color.
I am trying a smooth Bristol paper and
finding it buckles a bit with the washes.
I want to try the Yupo paper. I am intrigued.
I see some lovely paintings showing a wide
range of the usual or interesting techniques
out there in our blogging world.
Here are two recent ones.
Please let me know if you have any
other artists to recommend or
helpful pointers to start me off.
Our winter is off to a slow start.
Look what I found behind a friends pot.
He should be hibernating.
No manners - sticking his tongue out at me
