back in business

Whew, i was able to undelete my account and recover all of my content. That was scary!

So back to business.

The start of new book always begins with layin down my watercolor palette this time acompanied with some reflection.

Also posted is the first sketch.

That one started out as something different, took a BAD turn for the worse and then evolves into this.

Sometimes things dont come out the way you planned and that's ok :)

new book and testing

first this is to test my blog... al of my images have dissappeared........ crud

Beach Day

spent saturday afternoon at the beach with some friends. GREAT DAY!!!!


Playing around with different tools :)

i have a bunch of unscanned items in my book. I feel i am working through some style / technique things right now.

learning new techniques at the symposium was awesome, but now i seem to be struggling to find my way.

plus, my watercolors feel flat. so i am looking for a good book to get the basic techniques down. (any suggestions out there?)

also, I'm trying to find balance. I love the details in architecture, nature and most things. but at what point do i feel as if i am drafting? I have the new want to not only capture what i see but capture the feeling the essence of where i am. So, i have given myself permission to use my sketchbook as workbook of sorts. To worry less about making the book itself be a finished piece and let myself explore.

So, stayed tuned...
