Although I generally work in watercolors I started with oils and acrylics. This oil I did plein aire near Phoenix. The big difference between oil and watercolor is with oils you lay in a dark foundation then build up your lights, in watercolor you work to save your whites and build your darks. Most of the workshops I have attended for oils always note at some point that a watercolorists is among them. Just too anxious to lay in the highlights.

This painting of one of my grandsons was inspired by a photo taken during a visit one summer when he was about four. He spent hours on the patio with his crayons depicting his impression of summer at grandmas
