It's been awhile since I have updated and added any paintings. I'm sure some of you have been wondering. Currently, I'm taking a bit of a break from traveling. I had hoped to have more time to do some painting while I was traveling but that has not been the case. But I have been lining up quite a few photos that I would LOVE to translate into a painting. So here I am catching up on posting of some paintings that I have managed to fit in here and there while on my road trip.
This doorway is based on a photo that I took while I was in Taos, New Mexico. I love the adobe colors and there always seems to be these bunches of peppers hanging around. I started with a flat wash and then used puddle style of watercolor. So here is my translation of a Taos Doorway...

Next, here is a painting that I did of a friend's dog. I have been holding on a copy of this picture for sometime and one night in a hotel I decided it might be fun to give it a try. I did it in a puddle style of watercoloring; mixing the colors together in small "puddles" of water right on the paper. Here's the result and she did indeed think it looked like here cute little pooch.
