I painted this oil with the plein air group at Descanso Gardens--sunny day. Don't miss all my paintings in the gallery pages.
Watercolor Painting Tip
To avoid 'artist block' I will just play with the watercolors --painting wet into wet to loosen up. Usually this will stir my imagination and creative juices. I will then paint to have fun, without judgement, before I start a serious piece. The flowers above began this way.
My Latest Inspiration
It was a great paint out at Descanso Gardens with all the irises blooming. This watercolor was painted on hot press 140 lb. paper.
