New colors

I usually stay with a 7-color palette but while in the US I couldn't resist the temptation to buy a few of Daniel Smith's PrimaTek colors - made of natural minerals. I haven't had time to do much more than these blotches so far but I'll show you the paintings as soon as I've made them.

San Francisco Bay

A fishing boat seen from Pier 39. The fog pouring over Mount Tamalpais feeds the Redwoods with moist and the bay with fresh water from the creeks.

Cable cars

The flight took us to California. We visited our friends and did some hiking in San Francisco, one of the most beautiful and charming places I've ever been.

Rocky Mountains

Virgin Atlantic doesn't allow pointed objects like watercolor brushes on board, so I took a photo of the Rocky Mountains at 37,938 feet and used it as a reference for this painting. Next time I'll shorten my brush and see if they accept it.
