Everglades Watercolor


Here are the first 9 watercolors from the Everglades.

I can't say that they convey the stunning beauty found here... but it's a start!

I believe it's important to begin the series-- as I've already amassed 1500 reference photos to work from.

There will be more paintings to come in the next year.
