Here's to: New Blog New Beginning

7.5x11 watercolor, 140 lb cold press paper. I painted this while in Albuquerque recently. I used Winsor Newton paper and travel kit. Colors: Cadmium yellow pale, ultramarine blue, yellow ochre, cadmium yellow hue, cobalt blue, burnt sienna, cadmium red pale, sap green, burnt umber, alizarin crimson, and viridian.

As a watercolorist mostly self taught with workshops scattered throughout the years it is my hope to be able to answer questions and show you works in progress.

So I will say "Here's to my new blog!" This painting's title is 'ritaville . CHEERS!!!
