Happy Fall...it's going to be almost 100 degrees today in Sacramento!


Typical weather here in our Mediterranean climate zone. Most likely by the end of October it will be getting a lot cooler. The Donner Party wagon train got stuck in the Sierra Mountains at Donner Lake end of Oct. Enough meteorological and historical info and on to watercolor art by yours truly. These are two studies I did for a recent watercolor workshop here in toasty Sacramento. Both were painted wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry on 140lb. Arches cold press paper.

Thank you for viewing my Fall watercolor painting, Sharon and Sarabel.

Barbara - those streaky lines are simply drawn vertically down with a #16 round brush wet-on-wet. No guts, no glory.
