Drakes Estero

Can't seem to stop things from sloping to the right.

Paintings in process

All oil on canvas. Sizes vary from 28"x52" to 20"x28". Top to bottom: my grandfather shooting a gun in Mexico in the 70's, muni depot after a storm (bad photo - the whites are not so bright), and a view of the bay and Oakland from Marin (from memory) with freaky fog and haze.

Rocks and fog

The fog painting works as an icy landscape when it's flipped over.  Freaky.

More watercolor

Plein air again today.  I'm learning to slow down with the watercolors.  The crazy skies looked like a mess of high clouds and low fog with a bright blue background. Gave me a chance to experiment with how to work with wet on wet.  All are 9"x12".
