Murrieta, CA, United States
Hi! Welcome to my blog. I am a mixed media artist who lives in Murrieta, California. I work in acrylics, watercolor, pastel, charcoal and other water and drawing media. My main subjects are abstracts, abstract landscapes, florals and gardens, equine abstracts and dog portraits. I love to use color! I try to incorporate the three C's in all of my work - color, contrast and composition! Most of these paintings are for sale. Please check with me for availability and prices if not posted.

Chartreuse Corner

10x14 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. This piece is done with more of a wash effect with the watercolor and then the pastel and charcoal are added in a sketchy style. I did this very quickly so that it would have a lot of energy and movement. It is very easy to overwork art and with watercolor especially it can become "muddied" or heavy looking. Does that make sense?
