Gathering Storm Clouds

I never liked paintings of light houses. Now that I have painted a few, I see the attraction. You can have dramatic skies plus reflections in water. The actual building is also interesting. This was from a picture of a light house in Maryland, which I greatly modified. There is no such light house except in my head. What fun.

Davis is Farm Country

This watercolor was done in the afternoon and nobody bothered me except the bugs. It was a beautiful day in Davis, CA and not too hot. The silos are quite tall and I simplified them. The road in and the posts were added as directional tools and to give some idea of depth and size.
