Light in the Bay; Views in Marin
I paint "plein air," on location in Northern California, and I feature seascapes and beaches, bridge-scapes, mountain views, farm views, and townscapes. I love sharing the freshness, immediacy, and joy of the plein air experience.
In watercolor, the combination of surrender and control is a fine balancing act, with the ever-changing light, the wet-to-dry continuum, and the varying properties of the paints themselves. It's invigorating to be internalizing the physics of the process and expanding in the freedom to paint more and more intuitively. I'm mostly self-taught, but paying attention. For me it's about impressions of light and rhythm, color, composition and value, and the delicious feeling of successfully capturing a fleeting magical moment, in a painting.
