Plein air paintings and drawings from around Silicon Valley.

I have spent a couple of days in the studio working over some old paintings and making some new ones. Every now and then I get very frustrated with watercolor so I switch back to acrylics for a change. The painting above is from a photo and memory of Don Edwards Nature Reserve looking across at the Coyote Hills. Worked mostly wet in wet with brush and palette knife.
This painting is a poured piece with additional brush/palette knife work. It's been in my studio for a long time and started out life as something very different. It finally told me what it wanted to be! There are two poured layers on it and some different gel mediums for texture.
