Living in Southern California gives me opportunities to paint around the water. In the harbor or at the beach. Here are a few paintings I have painted this year. The first painting is entitled , Tower Two. It was for a Plein Aire competition in the city of Huntington Beach. The Second painting, Crystal Cove. It was painted using a limited palette of three colors, red, yellow and blue. The third piece is of the Newport Pier. That evolved from last semesters watercolor class I teach at Vanguard University.
