Watercolor – Update 01

Sorry it has been awhile since I have posted here. Life can get in the way of art sometimes. If you have been reading my blog, you know that transparent watercolor is the media I love. Lately, my watercolor journey has taken strange turns, and I had little time to paint over the last few months. I plan to change that as this year goes on…..and, most importantly, will be updating this blog regularly.

Here are a few of my recent painting and I hope they hold your interest.

First a new face since portraiture has to be high on my list of things I like to paint.

This is one of my dear friends. Both he and I do a lot of plein air painting in the Central Florida area. He is a character, and loves to flirt with the ladies. I had fun capturing him in this magical medium called transparent watercolor.


















A good artist friend, Roger in the UK, allowed me to use his reference photos of Venice. Thank you Roger, your digital images have inspired me.

Great to see your blog alive again Bob.

You have done a much better job with the Venice references that ever I did. :)

Wonderful paintings of Venice, Bob, especially the second one - much better than anything I saw at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour exhibition in London a couple of weeks ago!
