Another week of painting

Park City is an amazing place. Just 20 minutes from Salt Lake and the conveniences of a city, but a quiet spectacularly beautiful place in the tops of the mountains. There is the one drawback of the 20 mile mountainous freeway drive at 80 miles an hour which is usually filled with slow semi-trucks and broken down vehicles going up and white knuckle speed demons going down!
Still working this week in my small notebook, I am going to start painting larger now. I feel like these small sketches are trying to contain too much info in too small a space. Also I want to get a looser feeling and I can't seem to do that with little brushes.

Little Postcards

Using my new Sennelier half pan palette and a handmade unsized-cotton watercolor sketchbook, I've been thinking about postcard images. These all measure approx. 7"x 9". The weather has been spectacular and I paint at about 8:30 each morning for a couple of hours.

Painting every day again!

We're living in Park City and I am painting everyday. I got my paint-out kit replaced so here are a few views of the area around where we live at Fox Point and in Park City. Most are a walkable distance from our place.
