I have decided to close out this year with a series of small landscape studies. I am revisiting some of my favorite scenes with more interpretive landscape compositions emphasizing an expressive approach to watercolor painting.

The advantage of working on a small scale with such a big subject as landscape is that I am prevented from becoming too obsessive with detail. And I get to play with using a new color to my palette, cobalt blue, as well as with my new brush, a Robert Simmons 1/2" dagger. I bought the dagger brush to use in my sketch kit, but I am enjoying painting with it too much to reserve it for only sketch outings.
