Tiger On a Rock (Watercolor in Moleskine sketchbook, 5x8").
Over Christmas break, Juliana and I traveled to the Central California Coast. We love the area and try to get up there a couple of times a year. On this trip we wanted to throw in a few new excursions. With a little research we discovered two enchanting places: the Morro Bay Museum of Natural History and the Charles Paddock Zoo. We had a great time. The zoo had a beautiful Malayan Tiger named Menderu on display. I painted this watercolor based on a photo I took.

Lucia With Red and Blue Background (Ink and watercolor in Moleskine sketchbook, 5x8").
I began a new Moleskine sketchbook over Christmas and for this sketchbook I want to push and develop the backgrounds more while rendering the foreground object in interesting and emotive ways. Hopefully it will be an engaging one-hundred pages. In many ways, I simply want to trust my skill set and let go -- to be less cerebral and more instinctive.
