Fresh original watercolors and oil paintings are posted here as soon as they are finished. I paint flora, fauna and other interesting things. But sometimes the only subject is the paint!

Eucalyptus Tall and Thin, Watercolor
The dark background really makes the subject pop forward. I had fun making up the shapes of the shadows and giving it a sense of light. The nature of the tall and narrow plant called for a long thin composition. This is 1/2 a sheet of Arches Watercolor paper. 15x30.
