Postcards from Yosemite

Thank you to Erika for inviting me to show you some of my watercolors here on the Daily Watercolors Blog. I've enjoyed looking at all the beautiful pieces on this site. Here's a few postcard paintings from my recent Yosemite trips.

The first two are about 4 x 6, and the last one is about 3.5 x 5 - it's painted in the little tiny sketchbook with the little tiny travel palette that Erika gave me when I was in Arkansas. Number one is the bridge at Curry Village in Yosemite Valley. Number two is the vast walls of Yosemite Valley, and Number three is Birch Lake at Camp Mather, just outside of Yosemite.

This is my very first blog post ever! If it goes well then I'll get more adventurous and post some larger on-location paintings I did on this same trip.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks so much for all your encouragement and help to conquer technology, Erika! After my show this weekend, I'll see what I can do about my own blog as well!

Welcome Hillary! I look forward to seeing more posts from you - these are lovely, I especially like the first one of the bridge and how you handled the water and reflections.
