Foggy Day - In water color

Foggy Day      

Water color 8 1/4" X 12"

This is one version of a scene, I will be re-visiting in the future in other mediums and with different interpretations.  I liked the thought of bringing out some of the colors floating around in the grey that is fog.  I love fog, it's a versatile expression for romance and mystery.

Sketches...real rough draft versions

was to be for a book, but we're going a different direction now

started while in the waiting room at the hospital

Started in the car while driving home over Labor Day weekend

another drawing done in the car

The last two are the most recent, and when I've done something that I'm very happy with, I will paint it for my sister and her book cover. She is writing short stories along with a set or other books.  She's taking some time right now to rest and re-group, but this is the best time for me to work out what to paint. It helps for me to have more time and less of a deadline.  I have another water color to post, I just have to get the computer to work so I can scan it in.
