Wanting to improve my watercolor technique skills, and using an
old technique magazine, I completed all the lessons in the book.  Even though
I have  taken many watercolor classes, I still found fun techniques to retry or learn.

"Woodsy"
Masking Technique

"Floral Study"

"Floral Bouquet" 
A technique using white!

"Flowers"
Negative painting technique.

"Fish Tales"
Stamping with ferns.

"Ocean Spray"
Technique using the white of the paper.

"The Far Distant Mountains"

"Beautiful Birches"
Masking tape technique.

"The Old  Barn"
Very little sketching, using the brush to draw shadows
and any lines.

"Cattails"

Karin's "Kitty"
Original oil on canvas, 11x14.  I promised my sister Karin I would paint
her very favorite cat!  This was such a fun undertaking, though a little
testy at times!  My goal was to capture those naughty eyes!

"Water Lily on Trump Lake"
The background on this oil painting was painted using left over
colors of paint on my palette from a previous painting.  It seemed
to be the perfect backdrop for my water lily photo!
