Tide Water (9x12 cold press)
I did this painting from a tutorial I found on You tube by watercolor artist John Baxter. Since I have not had lot of watercolor training I find that you tube videos are a good resource to pick up painting tricks and techniques. This painting makes use of a limited pallet of Ultra Marine Blue, Raw Sienna, Paynes Gray and burnt Umber I added a bit of Quinacridone Rust to hint at flowers in the foreground. This scene is not from Oregon but the scene reminds me a lot of the tidewater rivers around Tillamook on the Oregon Coast like the Wilson, Nehalem and Kilches river.
