I had a wonderful time! Dia was very helpful and supportive while creating a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. It was like sitting down with an old friend, but with watercolors. I was a little nervous since this was my first very public outing since COVID, but she's very sweet and put me at ease. I learned a lot about my technique and she provided informative feedback. I left feeling a lot better about my abilities.

I recently began to study watercolor and oil painting so that I could create art from my landscape photos. I take classes at a neighborhood studio together with young children, teens and a few older people like myself and have learned more in a few months than I ever imagined. This photo was taken from the parking lot at Cabrillo Lighthouse and painted in watercolor a few month later. While I have hundreds of digital photo images, I have only a handful of paintings making them so much more preci

Title or Location: Summer morning
It was a typical summer day when I thought about painting a bird, birds are one of my favorite subjects, as they show purity and a free spirit vibe, and painting them using a watercolor makes everything smooth as you can easily tone down each color while you work with another detail.

This is the first page in my newest watercolor sketchbook. It's an image I created from multiple years of beach going and what I imagined I would look like sitting waiting for the fish.

Title or Location: Trinity River Audubon Center
This painting was inspired on one of the many beautiful trails at the Trinity River Audubon Center. I recently joined a Dallas Plein Air painting group and this was my first outing. Mesmerized by the morning sun. Inundated by the sounds of nature. It was a blissful experience. It had been so long since I had been with nature and admittedly caught the plain air bug. There was a unifying experience as nature never stopped all around me and neither did I!

I work in sketchbooks 98 of the time with my favorite pens. I prefer to draw live rather than from photos, so at night I find my characters on TV. Watercolor or other mixed media may find its way into the drawing, depending on which sketchbook I used. This was drawn in a Strathmore 500 series mixed media softcover book. The paper takes mixed media extremely well.
