Each of these started off as a giveaway calendar from a Chinese restaurant. I’ve been collecting these and “repainting” them by painting over everything except the main image.
I’ve been meaning to do more with watercolor pencils to get a better grasp of how to work with them.
This one is for friends Ted and Claire who live in Colorado, land of extremely variable weather. They wanted a painting that reflected some of the color and variety they see on a daily basis.
I’d had a few artist trading cards with me, so I started sketching the view from Roy’s.
I decided I wanted to paint more, and to make more paintings for friends.
In hindsight, I realize that three things made it possible to paint, and finish, now: a deadline, the daytime, and having peaches (both cut and whole) nearby.
I brought down a folding chair to the dock and sketched this during two sessions.
