Tower of Ojai
Without our tower where would we be? This is Ojai's most famous landmark...and all the local artists paint it. My tower is leaning a bit because it is a spontaneous painting, but next time I try this angle I might use my triangle to get it straight.
I took a watercolor clinic from a teacher who paints in a bright, bold style without measuring and it rubbed off on me a little. However, his colors are much bolder than mine are.
As an artist who NEEDS to sell her work I find that local scenes sell more than my wild fantasy paintings, though there is a small market for those as well.
This is not the finished product, though it looks okay in this picture. I could have left it alone.
Merry Christmas everyone and anyone.
