I like to simplify my paintings and nearly always work wet-in-wet. I like the soft look it creates. I live in the seaside town of Sausalito CA, and the surrounding landscapes are an endless inspiration for my watercolors. We have the bay on one side and the mountains on the other - not to mention the redwood forests and nearby marshes. I am inspired by all of this, but at the same time like to put my own interpretation on what I see, sometimes changing the colors and other times using materials to stretch the boundaries of my watercolors.
