A new painting up on my gallery blog...



The first time I got to visit the man who would become my husband, we took a ride through Shenandoah National Park, stopping to sketch, paint, and photograph the natural beauty all along the way. When it came time to do a painting for my upcoming North Light book, Watercolor Tricks & Techniques (publication date Feb. 2010) I had to take the challenge of this beautiful, ancient mountain range as night fell and the clouds gathered against the horizon.


I've kept the paintings we did on the spot; this one is from sketches and resource photos, taken as night fell...

It's up in my gallery blog, here: http://cathyjohnsonart.blogspot.com/2009/02/dusk-on-blue-ridge.html

Please stop by and see it and more recent works...
