Skip, love the watercolor work! Great job! It is also my first love when it comes to painting.
Don't have any offhand to add, but will add some of my ink line art. Some are copyrighted/published so needed to add a crummy watermark on there, but can still get a jist.

Nice work you guys. I have a hard time drawing a straight line (unless of course I'm trying to draw a curved line, lol.). I was never blessed with the "art" gene I reckon.

That's okay I have never balanced a balance sheet...My career was creative...I was left alone to create magic and left alone because few could keep up let alone understand my concepts unless i drew em...Ha!...but I think of the art thing...as another side of the scale...The dichotomy of visual learners and auditory...science majors and English majors...or singers and drummers...we all do a different do.

Yep, I am with Skip, some things come easier to others. I am so unorganized, mostly, and I can rarely finish any art I start. My mind... I start mowing a lawn one way and then decide to do the edges, then go back and do diagonals : )

Here are a few over 20 years old that were never finished.
I lazily call them "studies" since I wasn't able to complete.

Minds work in odd ways. I studied art and science in school, and it sure was easier to go to art class instead of studying for a science test. They expected real answers : )

Thanks Skip.
You really are a very fine watercolor artist ! Watercolor is the true test, not a lot of rework is possible.

Do you paint your watercolors in the field?

You need to think that stuff through the first time, and have the skills to pull it off. Good for you !
I do a lot of seasonal plein air painting...i don't copy photos...originality is it for me... I had my first solo show in 1974...so I guess I have been painting a while...back then I painted with all kinds of mediums and on different surfaces...even constructivist abstract large works...ah youth! ha!
