    It's rare I do landscapes because it feels overwhelming to capture the essence of the great outdoors. I am typically caught up in the details and in this painting I captured the scene with very little detail. 🙂 watercolor

    In this sketch I painted a wash of colors and let dry. I drew the cactus then layered with the darkest washes. IMG_2560

    I enjoy hiking and bringing my little watercolor sketch set. I should have brought my masking pen to keep the white highlights of the cactus needles. desert

    I make watercolor greeting cards that combine origami and drawing. I sell them in galleries and shops and teach classes on how to make them. lovemooncard

    I like to keep small sketchbooks handy so I can paint the moment. It is part of my mindful art practice and I try to do a little something every day. karensvisualjournal

    Painting on location is really fun. I photograph the subject as a reference as I begin the painting so that I can capture the light and shadow. That way I can enjoy the surroundings and go back to painting later. sbboats
