WATERCOLOR, WATERCOLOR.: 2009 continued.

My photo
MI, United States
Painting and creating art has always been a huge part of my life. From a young child with pads of typing paper to the present ... an older experienced dude with pads of watercolor paper. My entire work life was as a commercial artist at all levels of the pecking order. I was born and partially raised on a farm and a small town. Midwest roots except the winters seem to be colder these days. I'm a family guy with kids and grandkids. Unfortunately I can be quite the procrastinator. Retirement does have it's drawbacks, but I can live with that one. Thanks for stopping by and showing interest in my blog.

Classics














Plein air watercolor. Cold, wet and blustery.
Impossible for watercolor. This was painted from
the warmth of the car. These two old wooden
sail boats were being tossed around in the rollers.
Definitely not a day for sailing.

Marian,
Thats a great question.
I can't remember what my original plan
for this one. Must have been too many
drugs or too few, which ever.
I think I'm going to take this one down and
just stick with the double d blog.
Thanks for rattling my chain.
Doug

Great painting. That could not have been easy with moving boats. Nice colors. I love the green of the trees and the boat.
Oh, and thanks for leaving a comment on my blog.
