Tualatin Hills Nature Park, upper left detail, work in progressTualatin Hills Nature Park, work in progress, 14H x 20W inches watercolors on 140 lb cold pressed. Most of the work was painted with masking medium so I’m being extra careful not to paint over some of the great marks that occurred from that.

It’s almost finished – I’d just like to highlight the generous chunks of glowing moss that characterize Winter and early Spring here in Oregon. Indicating the source of light, more¬†depth and shadows is also important.
