Madison Falls

Not too far from the house is a small tourist attraction called Madison Falls. It’s one of the many tributaries that fill the might Elwha River, which flows in to the Sound.

This was a watercolor exercise in which I was attempting to loosen my style, perhaps gaining a bit more fluidity in the medium. Not too shabby for a quick study.

Logging Truck

Photo taken on tour.

Above is the photo I took of the logging truck while visiting a local motorcycle repair shop. The owner had several old antique logging vehicles on his property. I thought they were worthy of a painting.

Below is a gallery of shots depicting the process or steps I am using to achieve the final paining. The painting is ongoing so come back often to check out my progress. So far, so good.

Here are the colors used: Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow Light, Indian Yellow, Cadmium Red Deep, Alizarin Crimson, Raw Umber, Burnt Umber, Raw Umber, Hooker’s Green Light, Hooker’s Green Deep, Phthalo blue, Ultramarine Blue, Payne’s Grey.
