journey’s end

So here we are at the end of July, the last day of World Watercolor Month, and the end of my journey through Tony Smibert’s Painting Landscapes from your Imagination. As a finale I thought I would revisit one of the images you may remember from my post, “encapsulating the essence,” a drawing of the Sino Himalayan Garden at VanDusen Botanical Gardens here in Vancouver.

I made a monochrome print on Arches watercolor paper (11″ x 15″); took this to the studio;
mixed my bowls of color and let the washes do their work.

I wonder what August will bring…


  1. Awesome work! I’m like seeing your work all pinned up showing your progress through the book.

    I’m just did the first exercise last night. My gradient isn’t as good as I want it to be so I’ll be doing that one again before moving forward.
