Pt. Reyes Vineyards - Summer Rain!

(Watercolors on 12" x 16" waterboard)

Took a day trip up to Pt Reyes with my wife. It's normally about a 45 minute drive ... unless there's RAIN..... which makes it that much more dangerous when driving through Lucas Valley's curvy roads. Luckily it rained only the first part of the day... which allowed me to park and set up.

During this type of weather I'll have to find some coverage.... in this case my SUV trunk door! As for views, the options are limited by the fog and misty air. I walked around and scoped the area.... off to the distance I spotted a barn.... and a truck loaded with hay!

Usually around this time I have to work fast because of the summer heat.... but working wet on wet with these low temperatures requires some patience to allow the watercolors to dry. I've always had a hard time approaching misty skies and usually over-work the painting.... but I think I captured the atmosphere and how the day felt from Sunday's paintout :)

TRANSFORMERS Sketchcards now Available!!!

I recently completed a handful of sketchcards that will be randomly inserted into boxes for the New 2013 Transformers Optimum Collector's Set!

It's a mixture of the 1980's cartoon (Generation 1) and the latest Transformers Prime Animated Show (HUB Network).

The sets are now available on store shelves and at Hobby Stores!

To check out the cards I worked on, click on the photo below:
