Yellow and Rhodies

A little rhododendron sketch in another Kilimanjaro paper sketchbook....that paper is growing on me... It is bright white...the sizing is not too hard and it has a good texture (cold press).  I am also using more of the cooler yellows on my lemon, Winsor, hansa etc....continuing to learn and grow.

I am so happy to announce that my painting "Little Jester" was selected for publication in North Light Books' latest watercolor competition, Splash 18: Value| Light & Dark! Available next year....looking forward to seeing it in print.  On another announcement note...I will be doing a demonstration for the Vermont Watercolor Society at their annual spring meeting this Saturday the 21st of May in Killington. Also check my sidebar or website for my classes schedule for the Vermont Art Event in July.

Wrong season

Not your typical spring floral sighting...but a fun one to paint and to stretch your "yellow" pigment muscles.  It's a color that gets contaminated quickly and can get muddied up.
