Hua Qing Hot Spring, November Rain
"Hua Qing Hot Spring, November Rain"
22" x 30"
Fabriano Uno 140 lb Soft Press

This painting was done years later from a photo I took of Japanese tourists in China in 1987. I tried to capture the feel of the rain by deliberate dripping and splashing on the painting, and to honor the location by what I thought of as Oriental touches, including the red stamp from my own "chop" of a Chinese "transliteration" of my name.

This painting was done in the pointillism style. It is not often used in watercolor but I do like the effect.

W&N on Fabriano CP, 140lb

This merchant street in Lyon is famous for its "Bouchons Lyonnais" (small restaurants sporting hearty traditional cuisine and atmosphere). The glow provided by the multi-colored lighting to this rainy street scene made my day.

Amazon Rain
"Amazon Rain"

Arches paper, W&N watercolors, and masking fluid

It will be hard to see the straight lines of rain when so small. I first lined the paper with masking fluid, then painted, when dry I removed masking fluid.
