30 Days 30 Faces - in Watercolor.
30 days, 30 videos from accomplished artists showing their process and techniques for doing portraits in watercolor. A LOT of work. But, portraiture is really my favorite. I'm trying to loosen up my painting, but, it's a real challenge for my relentlessly literal left brain!
Anyway, here a a few of my favorites from that month.
Monsoons bring even more spectacular sunsets
I love the drama of the monsoon thunderstorms - sudden billowing thunderclouds, massive thunder and lightening and then drenching, flooding downpours (for max 20 min) - so different than the day-after-day gray skies and gentle rains of Oregon. While this year, I've had lots of gray days with on-and-off sprinkling as the big storms skirted my location, I did get a few big rains!
|Around the house and across the driveway the water flows . . .|
|Normally dry wash across my street!|
|My side yard as the water continues over to the neighbors . . .|
|Despite grates in the wall for drainage, the back yard often floods for a couple hours.|
And then there are the sunsets!!
