2nd North Bay Plein Air Painters Meetup

This was the 2nd North Bay Plein Air Painters meetup. We went over to St. Vincent's church in San Rafael. I didn't realize there was such a cool building in San Rafael. It's out in the middle of nowhere, but it's really fun to explore and is ripe with great opportunities for paintings.


As you can probably tell, I didn't start with any drawings in these paintings. I need to discipline myself a bit better with that. This first painting was done over another painting, which was done over one under that. It's like a matryoshka doll painting... The great thing about gouache that it's either as transparent or opaque as you want it.

We then went out to the Nicasio reservoir afterwards. It's a pretty good spot for painting, with it's many hills overlapping eachother. I still think the background hill can be pushed back a bit by lightening it.

It was hot today. So hot that when I was swimming at 10pm, a rat actually jumped into the pool randomly and just started swimming around. It couldn't get out, so I had to take it out myself. It wasn't a wild rat, it was one of those cute rats, probably someone's pet. I didn't want to grab it with my hands though, so I had to use my towel. I got it out before it drowned which would have really sucked. So the moral of the story is.... a rat made my soak my towel.

Dance Experiments

I did these semi-abstracts that I painted from a bunch of my photography. I’m trying to get the feeling of movement and music. As far as I’ve seen, I don’t anyone else doing anything quite like this, so I don’t know if I’ve hit on something interesting or if these are total bombs. Either way, any feedback would be hugely appreciated!

Belated Mother's Day Present...

As anyone who knows me can attest, I'm very absent-minded. I leave things at home when I go out the door ALLLLLL the time....... So I forgot my gift for my Mommy at my apartment when I went to visit this weekend. To make it up to her I'm giving her this painting of the flowers which will probably be wilted by the next time I see her....

Gouache 9x12, 2 hrs.

Gouache Painting - Creek + Video Capture (1 of 7)

Hey guys, I did this painting while recording myself with a nifty little pocket-cam that can record up to 1 hr. worth of video. I painted this in about an hour, yes. This is my first attempt at recording this, so any feedback is hugely appreciated. Next time I won’t do the commentary at 1 in the morning, that might help!

(broken into 7 parts, because youtube has a 10 min. upload limit)

Gouache Painting Video 1-7

Part 2 through 7 coming very soon!
