The book that I have written about painting on Watercolor Canvas is now available on this website. Click here for more news about painting on watercolor canvas.

To order the book click the link in the navigation bar to the left.

To me, it is a wonderful and rewarding challenge...something new and innovative, and the watercolor, if treated with an acrylic varnish does not need glass in the frame. I am enthusiastic about the future of this new way of painting in watercolor. There are so many variations and methods of achieving new and exciting effects.
(There is also another surface that has these same features. I also paint on Claybord®) See the paintings from Provence.

The following paintings will be featured in step by step visuals and explanation.

SOLD


Botswana Lagoon

This was such a large undertaking that I had trouble at first keeping the transparent washes from rolling off the canvas! I ended up using much thicker pigment, and the result looks much like an acrylic painting.

Two Lilies in a Garden of Fern

Going with the Flow

I have not made a practice of painting fish because so many artists have done it over and over. But this Coy pond captured my eye in Costa Rica. Painting this on watercolor canvas was fun because I could swipe the brush in contrasting arcs to create the opposing currents in the water.

Willie
A wonderful pet miniature donkey, who is so fat that when he rolls in the pasture to scratch his back, he needs help to right himself.....much to the chagrin of the barn workers.

Ah! The Better to Taste you with My Dear!

One of the two Belted Galloway cows that graced the pasture next door for a number of years. Old, fat, blind, and without a tail (it was yanked off when she got it stuck in the crotch of a tree!

Return of the Scarlet Ibis

Painting on the watercolor canvas alllows the artist to take great liberties with clouds in the sky. This was a scene at sundown when the Scarlet Ibis return to the Caroni Swamp for the night in Trinidad. It is an amazing sight as thousands of brilliant red birds pass overhead and land in the trees.

 


 

 

 

 


San Miguel Laundresses
9" x 12"

Mexican Ladies haul their family's laundry to the local park where there are stationary tubs adnd a water trough for fresh water. Since the weather is so chilly in San Miguel during the night, they don't come to the park until about 10:30 a.m. to start their work. By then the sun has warmed. The work all day until they are finished, then wheel the clean laundry home to hang it out to dry.


The San Miguel Laundry

14" x 18"

The shadows in the park travel across the stones and up the wall, giving shade to the ladies as they scrub their clothes.

They sing and converse and giggle. It is a social event inspite of the hard work.
