Mount Pleasant

Got to work early and had some time to do a quickie - don't usually get a chance to do anything with morning light - should've left the sky unpainted.

Green Hill Palmetto, Magnolia Cemetery - Finished Painting

Recent watercolor painting approx. 11"x16.5". Have been working on this composition intermittently with sketches, site visits and photos since the end of January. I think it turned out well. Looking back, there are some things I probably would have done differently, but I'm done with it (mentally anyways). There's always that risk of taking it one step too far and overworking it...

Middleton Place, Charleston, SC

This is an unfinished sketch of the mill at Middleton Place - trying to work the composition out for a possible finished painting - kind of surreal with no water or sky. See here and here for related drawings.

Boat Ride to Fort Sumter

From photos and sketches back in January when we took a cold trip out to Fort Sumter. A Cold, crummy day for a boat ride in the harbor, but we still had alot of fun.
