Shelburne Falls in October

Beautiful day, as I remember. Maybe 2 or 3 p.m. on a quiet dirt road near some farms and orchards. Pulled the car off the road and worked as fast as I could....sometimes the less thinking the better. Actually, with respect to making pictures, minimizing the thinking is (or should be)
for me a top priority! Watercolor on board, c. 6" x 8".

2011 Post #1

Although my postings have been few since August 2010 (actually only one)
my work has continued....although most of it remains unphotographed. I have managed,
however, to make some images and have added them here. I did some pictures in October in Shelburne and the watercolor/gouache directly above is one from that effort. It was made while a shower passed through the area.
The remainder of the work, with the exception of the two pieces at the top, are of recent vintage and incorporate charcoal/watercolor/graphite/wash in combination or alone.
Pastel and charcoal (#1); charcoal (#2).
