Still Life - Apples

I enjoyed working on this still life and attempting to get the texture of the pottery just right. This little watercolor is on 140 lb. cold press paper measuring 6" x 8".

A Time For Reflection

This is a watercolor of my father-in-law at the Outer Banks in the Fall. We were on vacation there and this was a late afternoon on the beach. He loved his old captains hat & indeed he was the gentle spirited captain of our family. My brother-in-law who is a professional photographer ( snapped some wonderful photos that day and he generously allowed me to use them for reference. Papa passed away in June. A Time For Reflection is my first submission to Illustration Friday.
