At Devil’s Kitchen in Bandon, Oregon, Johnson Creek flows across the beach and out to the ocean. The tides and blowing sand from the dunes are continually rearranging this stream. The painting captures grass that has grown on the edge of a little pond area with the gently rippling stream passing by.

The sun peaked through a bit to give color to the grayness along the Coquille river. The thin watercolor washes settled in the large areas of this painting to give texture and pattern to the beach and river.

New Paintings via Cropping

22 Mar

One of the advantages of painting with watercolor on Yupo paper is that the paper can be cut down and reframed for a better composition or to refocus on the best part of a painting.  Every once in a while I go through my stored away paintings to see which ones could be made better by cropping.  These four are my newly created paintings from cropped old ones.
