New Watercolor Beginning of St. Elmo, Colorado

St. Elmo, Colorado

I managed to make some headway on this new watercolor today.  I laid in the sky, then worked on some basic wash techniques for the mountain horizon, and finally did some shadow work on  some of the foreground buildings and sheds.  I’m starting to get a feel for this one.

Studio time was at a premium, as there was some art business to tend as well.  I have new limited edition giclee prints coming out of my recent painting of Saint Ignatius Academy, as well as one I did over a year ago in Eureka Springs, titled “Ghosts of Eureka Springs Past.”  I also made a trip to the Weiler House gallery to drop off my original painting of Saint Ignatius Academy (  I will stop by their open house this evening, honoring Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price.  Afterward, I plan to attend the spring ArtsGoggle festival on the southside of Fort Worth (  My artist friend, Steve Moya, will have his booth set up on Daggett, near Main St.  (  I hope also to snap some quality photos of some of the Fort Worth south side sites around Magnolia.  So, I have a busy art evening planned, but am glad I got to put in some studio time nonetheless.

Thanks for reading.
