A mixed media piece I did a while back. Acrylic on canvas with stitching and leaf prints.
I went for a drive a few days ago to an older part of LA called Mt. Washington. Many of the streets spiral upward and provide special views. Snow on our local mountains. The result of a thunderstorm the night before.
The day was very beautiful after the cleansing rain. Everywhere I looked was green.
Being that it’s an older area, the trees and plants are lush and overgrown. I love that.
And of course the houses have so much character and charm.
It is pouring right now (we’ve been waiting), although not expected to last too long. I thought I’d practice a small watercolor sketch. It’s from a photograph of a trip I took to the city of Stirling in Scotland. Home of Stirling castle, which houses the sword of William Wallace (Braveheart).
Here is a watercolor I did a while back. At the time, I enjoyed trying to paint the details of the chairs and tablecloth.
Thank you for visiting.
