Tour in Upper Midwest

Just returned from an Upper Midwest Tour singing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.  What a great week and a half! 6 concerts in 5 states. We had some personal time between concerts, sound checks and bus rides to explore. I had time to do some quick watercolors.

May sketches at Leucadia

Had another chance to go to Leucadia, California.  Here are two quick sketches focusing on the the relationship of architecture and trees.  The third is a section of succulent garden I've planted which imitates a coral reef.  It was started outdoors and finished in the studio.  Looser outdoors, then it got tighter in the studio.  That is the nature of taking a painting indoors.
