Just a few of my very first attempts at painting in any medium… these happen to be in watercolor.

All of these paintings weren’t originals. They were simply done for my practice and to learn. I do not intend to profit from these. They are from various sources of demo’s.


All of these paintings were done on 140 lb. C.P. Watercolor paper of various brands.

Ok so I have a bunch more but save them for another post.

One can’t say that I didn’t give it my all when starting out on painting. But I could not get any better or do a painting from the best of reference photos!

This is my very first attempt at creating a blog period! So please bear with me as I try and sort out the user interface and settings associated with this site, thank you!

In this blog I’ll be posting some of the paintings I have and will do. That being said as I have only been painting for 4 or so years now 3 using soft pastels most of the paintings I will produce are that of demo’s from books,PDFs and magazines. I’m not trying to profit from these they are just for me to practice techniques and try to understand better what exactly goes into a great painting. Also it’s a great way to hone my limited skill set and to experiment.

I’m a self taught artist first tried painting 4 years ago in watercolor but soon realized that there is a huge learning curve and tried pastels and absolutely fell in love with the medium!

Here’s a few examples of what I’ve painted. One of my favorite artists are Liz Haywood-Sullivan, Maggie Price ECT.
