Landscapes

I started painting landscapes in oils more than 40 years ago and then moved to doing them in watercolors in the 80’s. In the past decade, my landscapes have become more loose and less detailed. I’m enjoying the fluid play of the watercolors when doing sky and water scenes. Here are a few examples.
