Study of a painter on the beach

Found this in my archives of watercolor people paintings. It was painted on 140lb cold press, about 10 inches by 16 inches. Looks like he's painting Monterrey Bay. Sure wish I was there painting Monterrey Bay!!!!! Note how I use lots of color hue variation and value changes. Lots of juicy washes too...some thin and some more honey-like in consistency.

I live too far away to attend your classes, but your comments always give food for thought. See you soon.

Love the unique composition, David.

Sat staring at this one. Love that quin. gold square in the middle - the texture/color and the blending in the clothing.

Lydie, food for thought is good! I certainly get fed a lot by looking at other artists I admire like Charles Reid.

Meera, When I don't leave enough light, I tear up the painting.

Thanks as usual, Autumn.

Dan, Yes, the Q gold is a great counterpoint to all the blue.

Love this. Just stumble across you and your work. Always enjoy the pleasure of seeing other's output. Great stuff.
