|Center for Wooden Boats Saunders Cold Press 5"x 7"|

I have been working on studying the different ways water can be represented. Here are watercolors I did from a scene at the Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle. I started with very loose light washes with irregular edges at the reflection. Over that base while still wet I added some darks. The paper was drying up a bit so I started getting hard edges around the white areas. After that first layer had dried a bit I added the final crisp dark strokes. To keep this painting somewhat simple and abstract. I was looking at shape, value and color.

I am in California for the week after our Line to Color Workshop. Right now I am in Fremont, California which is a stones throw away from Niles. I have sketched there before. This morning I took a couple of hours to paint the rolling hills and the train station in Niles. I will post more sketches later. But this is hot off my board.
