I’ve taken some time off watercolors. I’ve ended the southwest “Canyon Road” series. My little sister sent me some new watercolor paints from Derwent, Intense and Graphitint. They seem well suited for abstract landscape watercolor paintings. They make very nice washes giveing great depth in color. This watercolor abstract is 30” x 22” on Arches paper.
June 22 2021 Watercolor by John Gregg I used my photos from Bodie CA for the building it had a great reflection. The trees came from Zion UT. If you get the chance get to Bodie or walking the trail next to the Virgin river above the Lodge.
“Sunrise in the canyon” is a watercolor painting 36” long and 16” high. When I painted I didn’t think it would be hard to frame. I orders a frame last month it’s still not here. Yesterday morning I pulled out some teak I found last year on the side of road and some trim wood from the garage. I have a Matt cutter and Matt board from when I was a landscape photographer. Last night the frame had two coats of stain on it. A artist is not payed by the hour. You can see my painting April 12 to May 16 at the Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery at the Galleria Mall Henderson NV.
