I just completed this new watercolor marsh scene. How's it look?

Kind of a cold tone scheme for asouthern vista, perhaps the Blue Bayou?

A very oriental feel. I like it.

I love the "moss in the trees" look. I have been considering doing a sketch like that myself. The moss on top looks very good but the moss below that looks like you may have rushed it a bit. Not quite as thick and is a little "uniform" looking. Was the bird like an afterthought because you can see the "weeds" through the neck of the bird? Could be just the way I am looking at it. All in all a very good sketch. I like it very much.

No, the heron was planned and I had it filled in with fixative while I painted everything around it. The weeds through the neck that you are seeing are actually seperating the neck and the blue "crown feather" that extends from the head.

Very simple and peaceful. It does evoke the feeling of calm and serenity. Good composition and your technique is coming along nicely. The work has a very cool feel to it...
What I lack in talent I more than make up for with enthusiasm!

Growing up in and around New England salt marshes makes me like this painting alot! Almost the only thing that makes it an obvious southern marsh is the moss. I have always found Spanish Moss to be kinda creepy, in a Gothic romance kinda way. Still, it captures the peaceful feeling marshes have for me.

I love the moss!!! LOL...I live in middle North Carolina so we don't see much of that here. I have a friend in Florida and of course its plentiful there. It really intrigues me for some reason and can see a "moss" sketch in my future. You capture it very well!!
