This ATC (2.5 x 3.5) was done from my reference photos from Italy and a small 4 x 6 that I had done in plein air of the Ponte Vecchio. This also was done for the ATC project I'm involved in and has been sent to a fellow member.
I have always participated in the visual arts including watercolors, drawing and sketching, pen and ink, and photography. Since retiring from teaching I have devoted much of my time to watercolors, sometimes combining them with pen and ink or collage.
Watercolor is the perfect medium to capture the beauty that surrounds us. I love to travel, and sketch and paint wherever I go. Painting, especially on location, captures the spirit and life of the subject. I hope to continue doing that for a long time to come.
