Watercolor goes from light to dark, right??

Yep. Most of the time. Here is an example that I painted awhile back in beautiful Payne's Gray. If you want to learn how to do this, check out my hour and fifteen minute DVD titled "Portraiture in Payne's Gray. You even get the reference photo in the DVD case so that you can try it. My DVD sells for $55 (includes shipping). Contact me to order by calling my studio (Studio L) at 916-737-2311. I accept check payment only.

That Lovely Country Road

I painted this bucolic scene over the weekend while teaching a private watercolor class at my studio (Studio L). It was painted on 140 lb. Arches cold press paper, quarter sheet. Next week, I will have a watercolorist flying in from Texas to learn the ins and outs of watercolor portraiture painting. She is also purchasing my DVD "Portraiture In Payne's Gray" recommended by international watercolor artist Nicholas Simmons. It runs an hour fifteen minutes and includes the photo reference that I painted from. The DVD sells for 50.00 plus $5.00 for shipping. If you want to purchase a copy, contact me at: Enjoy these progressive views of "That Lovely Country Road",
