Watercolor Painting - Beating to Wind


Monotone paintings can challenge the artist to insure values (light and dark tones) are correctly stated. I entered a recent open project with the Art Café Network which required a monotone painting. It was a challenge because I rarely paint monotones. Since the America’s Cup races are coming up, and they are going through the elimination process, I though this would be a good subject. This was quickly sketched while watching TV! I think it captures the excitement.

Nice painting, Bob, even while being monotone you have captured the mist, the excitement, and the challenge. Way to go...

This is a very good blog showcasing your wonderful talent (and hard work). I read back to your first entry ... I join you in your advice to the young and the old-- when you know you have talent, develop it and use it. Never shelf your talent thinking you'll do it tomorrow (or in retirement) for tomorrow never comes. Neither may retirement. :)

Your paintings are super, Bob!

For something quickly sketched, you've captured something powerful and dramatic.

I am now a fan!!!!
