A friend of mine posted a beautiful photo of this monastery several days ago and I thought it warranted an attempted watercolor painting. I painted it on a half sheet of 300# Arches watercolor paper. Beautiful spot!!!
A watercolor using a lot of dry brush technique of Mt. Scott. Our little town of Medicine Park is located at the base of this mountain right before the entrance to the Wichita Wildlife Refuge. Mt. Scott is a part of the Wichita Mountain chain (one of the oldest in the U.S.).
Wichita Mountain Refuge
Two watercolors and pastel of scenes in the Wichita Mountains. The lake is Rush Lake and the tower overlooks the Lake from a mound of granite and trees. A beautiful scene. The second is a common sight on the Refuge of vegetation growing where it can between the granite boulders of the Wichita Mountain Range.
This is a watercolor I did from an old picture taken on a field trip to Colorado many years ago. I have basically been doing ink sketches with watercolor washes and I wanted to attempt a "pure" watercolor for a change. The picture offered me the beauty to do just that. I wish I was there right now. It is 113 degrees in Southwest Oklahoma and has been that for a week now.
