long time!

It's been way too long since I've posted. So Helen (who nags me every time I see her), here's some recent work.

The photo for this one was taken from a friend's deck a couple of weekends ago. We had spectacular sunsets, as you can see.

These two are 1/8th-sheet demos for my watercolor class. The woods was especially quick with no drawing except the too-dark paint outlines of the light tree trunks.

I started this one several weeks ago as a pastel but when I did the watercolor underpainting the paper buckled too much so I collaged, right over the sanded paper. I pulled it out today and tweaked it a lot with pastel over the collage. You might possibly perhaps recognize that it was done from the same reference photo as my previous post.
