Loving these landscapey pieces, they look great - very reminiscent of vintage menu covers and the like

I know absolutely nothing about painting so I love seeing the layers on the progress pix. Looks like another winner coming to life.

next couple of layers.

this layer was completely un authorized. paw prints and fuzz are not usually part of the painting process for me.

notice the obligatory tiki on the left. menu cover style. but I will probably place the tiki in the scene for the next version of this painting.

Dawn I really like the painting style you are doing in this series! I also think your skills at composition are really good in this latest series!

Paint on!

Im calling these 2 done First one was a small study for the bigger concept. mostly cause I needed to use that piece of paper its 10" x 11"
the bigger one is on a fancy stretched piece of cold press paper 15" x 24"
next one is all sketched out and ready for first layers of paint

small study

large painting

Ha Ha All! I got to see them in person and, although these are great pics, they just don't do justice to these paintings. They are fantastic and I intend to get me some!

nope Im not using any special secret coffee tequnique to"antique" the paintings. I think what makes them look old is the painting style, (old school watercolor technique) combined with only using a 1" or 1/2" wash brush. I did just find a brand new #1o filbert so that seems like it might be my new favorite brush. I use alot of daniel Smith quinocrodone gold to brighten areas its one of my favorites
I can tell that the pics arn't perfectly color accurate, thers alot of sublties that can be seen in person. I just cant pick up on the camera.

You forgot to mention your muddy-cat-paw technique. Brilliant!

I can attest to the fact that Ms Sophista-tiki's pieces have much more depth and wonderfulness in person. So if you like a painting you see online you'll love it in person. Buy buy buy!

Really beautiful series Dawn! Love the detail, yet loose washes. Dynamic color and composition!
Ooh-la-la!
