I'm having a great time this week in a workshop taught by Eugene Oregon artist Geoff McCormack. He gave us a demo on how he creates his beautiful rock textures, and I set to work doing a preliminary series I call "Rock Paper Scissors". This colorful painting is #1 in the series; I created a more neutral colored version (changing the drawing/composition slightly) in the #2 version. These 2 paintings are all watercolor, 10 x 14 inches. I took pictures of both paintings in progress (and still not quite complete--I need to add more values).
Here is the second in the series (Rock Paper Scissors #2). Notice the different composition and the choice of colors.
