Looking Back II

Watercolor on Arches - 12 x 9

I have finished a watercolor view of the old Beach Boulevard draw bridge from JTB Boulevard. The bridge has been replace, but I have several drawings and reference photos of it. I have many fond memories of this view and the times spent at this site.

Unfortunately, I loaned my good camera to my daughter for the weekend. This picture was taken with an old camera that doesn't always focus well or capture the right colors.

Looking Back

Watercolor on paper - image size 8x6

To purchase this painting, contact me

I'm back from taking care of my parents through Dad's health issues. After more than two weeks away from my easel, it's good to get back to work.

Here is a quick water color of the salt marsh looking back toward the old Beach Boulevard Draw Bridge. I am looking to do a larger work of this view in oil.

I did the last two paintings on a "harder" surfaced watercolor paper. It's new to me, and takes some getting used to.
