I painted these two landscapes yesterday. I've been taking a lot of pictures this winter season (nothing new there). I love the bare trees and the light that is special to this time of year. "Flooded road" is a small oil painting 6x6 and "Band of Trees" is a watercolor 11x14". I've really buried myself in watercolor over the past several months- it's a fast drying, low maintenance in the clean up department medium that I never really had a handle on in undergrad so I had staid away from it. But this fall I dove back in and I'm so glad I did, I really love it. However oil paint is my preferred medium, we always have a good time. I've missed the medium! So I'll probably be working with both over the next month or so.
