2012... Back To Gators!


Now that the new year has come... I am back to work on my Everglades show. I am going to do a few gators.. and then another pond.

These two watercolors of gators are the first in a series of the reptile.

The second one is done... but the first one is in it's first stages.

I am using Shadow Violet from Daniel Smith paints. The 'gator gray' seems to do the trick!

Carol, your gators are fantastic but your use of those huge blooms to create movement and drama is really impressive!
