The thrilling moment with Mian Situ.
Best Watercolor Award Carmel Art Festival 2017
Judge Mian Situ
Here are the other paintings:
I pushed myself to paint this subject at the largest size I can paint in these plein air events, it is such a monumental hill, it reminds me of a Henry Moore Sculpture.
A Morning Hike 12 x 12
I painted framed and parked during the Quick draw in 2 hours on Sunday
I drove to Carmel River Beach Lagoon because the energy is so positive and there are lovely wildflowers in case the fog blocks the views. I concentrated my focus on the point of land and painted everything else in soft focus.
Lagoon Morning 9 x 12 Quick Draw
I like how it glows inside the black frame.
