Sculpture Garden, DBG

Here's a finished painting done this summer as a demo for the class I taught at DBG. The class was about structures and landscapes in the Denver Botanic Gardens. In addition to basic landscape skills we studied linear perspective, the history of the architecture, and the landscape designers of DBG. It was a fun summer class!

Garden scenes in watercolor

I'm getting ready to paint numerous garden scenes, such as this one, for an illustration job. Watercolors lend themselves to painting details. Unfortunately, I still haven't mastered the knack for painting very quickly. I've been training myself to do quick, ten-minute sketches this summer, but it has not yet translated to my studio work. Got to speed it up!
