Plum Blossoms in Los Gatos Creek Park - 16

Plum Blossoms in Los Gatos Creek Park – 16″ x 20″, colored pencil on Bristol paper

I still consider 16″ x 20″ to be pretty big. Reference photos for this piece were taken more than seven years ago when my kids were much younger and often went to that park. The path along the creek is beautiful at all seasons.

Finished a big (at least for me) piece in colored pencil

Winter Dawn - 20

Winter Dawn – 20″ x 16″, colored pencil on Bristol paper

This is my first 20″ x 16″ piece, inspired by the only winter sunrise I ever saw (I am not a morning person) at Donner Pass near Lake Tahoe. My previous artworks never got bigger than 9″ x 12″.
