  1. Slay, your works are pretty neat and it would be interesting to see how you progress further in this sector. Colourblindness is but a secret weapon as well.

  2. Thanks for your comment. Its interesting that when I tell people I'm colorblind they say great go with it, it should be interesting, but sometimes when they see my work they whence and look like they ate a bitter.

  3. I enjoyed reading your blog very much, Jim -- especially your "en plein air" experiences. Tony Couch says in his book, "Watercolor, You Can Do It," that what seems to work best for him is to draw the value sketch outdoors, and then create the painting indoors. That way, he gets the best of both worlds. Also, some artists say that as long as you achieve an interesting arrangement and variety of values, you can choose most any colors and the painting will work. At any rate, this seems to be one of the most important things in achieving a strong piece, I believe -- that and authenticity (what is actually being communicated.) I hope you'll continue sharing your art and adventures!
