|Dusk in Indiana, Revised. Watercolor and crayon.|
10 x 12 inches.
Well, my painting morphed. You can see the previous version here. I was trying to integrate the barn using an overlay of Caran D'Ache crayon, and things got way, way out of control. Then, I managed to rein them back in to reasonable, but it required sacrificing the barn and silo. I kind of like this version. I especially like the texture I was getting when I applied crayon, wetted the crayon down, and then drew into it. It almost looks grooved like a wood cut.

|Winter Pine. Watercolor.|
Approximately 8 x 7 inches.
I snapped a pic with my phone as we were leaving a gas station (below)--you've probably noticed, the midwest is, ah, flat. Ohio's quite flat too, once you get north of Cincinnati. I wanted to paint the pine and horizon line, and somehow went kind of askew in the process. Once again, I haven't seen the reference photo for a couple of days, so I'm riffing on mood. I'm thinking cold can be a mood.
It's a three color palette--indigo, indian yellow, and permanent yellow deep. All Daniel Smith. Painted on Fabriano 300 lb rough paper. I'm going to need to buy more paper soon. I'll put it off as long as possible....

|Mountain At Dusk. Watercolor & Crayon.|
The above painting is fairly large, and is the same palette as Cross, An Untitled Abstract . There is a touch of crayon on the structure and at the edge of the mountain.
I'm not certain about it. I'll either ignore it (always safe), or edit (not as safe, but more fun.)

Tomorrow (2/7) is the Northminster Fine Arts Fair. It's the tenth anniversary of the fair, and I believe it'll be the 4th time I've participated. I've got all my work matted, and this morning I need to finish wrapping my unframed work in acetate and get things in frames. If you're in the Cincinnati Metro Area, stop by and say hello. (It's hosted at the Northminster Presbyterian Church at 703Compton Rd. in Finneytown, OH)
