Shades Of Winter


I painted this watercolor on a gray day in Sausalito, California. We look out over Richardson bay, which leads into San Fracisco bay. I love the neutral tones of the sky and land on days like this. As you can see, I took a lot of artistic license to make the watercolor more appealing. I wanted to show what one can do with a little imagination. I used only two colors, French ultramarine and quanacridone burnt orange. I did add a little white gouache for texture in the dark landscape area. The inspiration was from this photo below taken from my deck.
