watercolors on panels- Aquabords!

These are all 5x7 inches, which is huge for me! The thing I like most about working on these panels is that they don't need to be framed or put behind glass. As with any new surface it took awhile to get used to them. Can anyone guess who one of my references is for these winter scenes?
The panels come in many sizes. I used a cold wax medium to protect them and seems to working just fine so far. I glued strips of wood to the back, inserted screw eyes and then just needed wire and they are ready to hang!

More color studies

For the dark ones, no masking was used. Just picked up the paint with a clean brush and clear water.

Finished Cooper Lake color study

I masked off everything but the birch tree trunks and spattered them with a toothbrush. I've yet to do the others!

Color Studies and can't believe it's been so long

Didn't realize I hadn't posted anything in such a long time. I've been busy working on a new watercolor book- doing the drawings for the drawing section. These will also be in the proposed book (wish me luck with the publisher). This is Cooper Lake. I used white artists tape to mask out the foreground trees. I will also post a finished study so you can see where it can go but for here I was interested in color. I've got more of these but couldn't seem to get them all in one post!
These are 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches. the one on the right is even smaller.

Woodstock Landscape Watercolors

Not quite looking like this yet but always inspired when the snow comes!

Both done on hot pressed paper. And both on view at The Woodstock Artists Association and Museum!

Thought I'd try the wet on wet technique to render the fuzzy skin on a peach....
All of these are 3.5 x5 inches.
