Thanks for the nice comment on Silence #2 Harry. The light in the background trees I did by carefully lifting wet pigment from the center with a paper towel,then allow to completely dry.Next I painted the foreground and allowed this to dry completely.Next,using a small brush,clear water and paper towel,I lift little high-lights off the tree trunks,grass and moss,but as you know watercolor can be unpredictable so you need a bit of luck sometimes to make it all work!!Hope this answers your question Harry?  Take care,P.J.

Glad to hear you liked Cactus Hopes!  It is a recent work and it developed on its own.  There is something about cacti that is captivating!  I´m a beer drinker, too. Cheers!

Fabulous iceberg!  I am nearly 70 now and figure I need to make it now or die trying. But painting gives me life, it does not take from my life.  Good luck with copd, I still smoke cigs and probably have it, too :)

I did rent a studio in the basement here in Cali.  It has a gloomy feel to it with little lighting but it works in the space department. I use old newspapers to keep from doing permanent damage to the floors.  I have grown accustomed to it during the past few months... one of the most productive periods I have had since retiring and working on painting full time.  Did an exhibition last year but sold only one watercolor duck. Got discouraged at first, but no more. I figure one does this kind of work out of love.

Congratulations! You have done some simply excellent work, such as the cliffs painting with ocean.  Takes my breath away.  Landscape is always a challenge to me.  You asked about method, I have been mainly doing pours of acrylic with white acrylic medium and sometimes mixed with sand.  You simply pour into a master container from light to dark, then upside down your cup on the canvas and watch it flow!

Thanks Harry,painting was based loosely on my old '72 VWbug/beetle,not much power,but with the engine & tranny over the back drive wheels was great in snow!But being a hippy wagon back then it did have flower power!!

Thanks for the comment (and the beer) on my Ecology painting. I really love issues to do with the eco system and this image captures the essence in my eyes. I'll do another one .... when I've sobered up ! Ha ha.
