Faber Castell Water Color Pencil paintings Santa Fe area November & December

Here are the several water colors I’ve had time to create in these last two months, here in the Santa Fe National Forest and also at Tent Rocks, in New Mexico

I’ve been taking shots of them as they develop to show the progression

Pictures of the progression of Water Color Paintings done with Faber Castell

I’m actually not yet finished with the last of the three! I’ll post the completed version soon.

Here are several paintings, showing the progression from the first sitting and then completed in the next. Below is a flickr link to paintings done with (watercolor) colored-pencils 1,000 feet above Santa Fe, New Mexico elevation 7,198 feet, in the National Forest – where I’ve gone on walks with Luna, the owner’s dog where I’ve been staying. Luna has twice alerted me to a mother bear with cubs, which we’ve seen on two separate occasions – two different mother’s, one with two cubs that Luna barked up a tree, and the other was a larger cub up a tree and the mother bear nearly running in my direction due to the dog’s barks, until I called out and she turned the other way.

space spiraling

My contribution created with spiraling motion – which is how I believe space is interwoven.

I sense that even the rock feels organic and alive.

Following are some of the first colored pencil watercolors I did during the summer of 2014 when I was living once again in Pennsylvania  in the home in which I was raised and on the East Coast. I was fortunate to live in the home and grounds my parent’s created, together with my parents in the last year of each of their lives.

Decided to add a few picks of my flower arrangements that were created during the spring/summer of 2014, credit to the lovely flowers planted by my parents in the gardens!
