WATER STAIRWAY IN SAXNÄS, watercolor on Arches

Water Stairway in Saxnäs, watercolor, 14x20 (36x51cm.)

Ryan Brown, in this year's  January/February Artist Magazine,  has said: "The media are feeding the public a diet of superficial images". I agree. We artists must both educate ourselves and our audience at the same time.

According to Greg Albert, there is a simple formula to use in a painting: mostly, some, and a bit. Most of the colors should have the same characteristics, some should differ from the first, and a small bit of color should differ from the rest. I am trying to do this, not very easy!
