"Girl with Baskets"
oil on linen 8" x 10"
"Guilin Canal Boats"
pastel on paper 11.5" x 15.5"
We recently got home from a 2 week trip to China and I am now recovered from jet lag. I will be recording scenes from our trip in oil and pastel. We toured 5 cities, Shanghai, Guilin, Zhouzhuang, Yangshou and Beijing. I have over 2000 photos to sort through. We covered a lot of territory and I didn't want to overlook anything that might be paintable. This was a trip of a lifetime. Lots more paintings to come.
"Little Beijing Shop" 7" x 9" on watercolor paper
Inspired by my fellow artists in China, I decided to try pen & ink with watercolor, which I haven't done in a LOOONG time. Nice break from oils and pastels.
