St Helens Marina
12 " x 16" matted and framed
Senelier Watercolor, gouache, pen and ink, Caran D'Ache colored pencil.
140# Arches hot press cotton paper

We were invited to work from the St Helens Marina inside their rec room so we could work without being rained on. It's been a very wet year so I'm getting the opportunity to learn how to capture clouds and the ambiance they set across the entire landscape.

The original is available. Prints are also available.

I decided to draw this view because it will never look the same after this. St Helens (Oregon) has a once in a lifetime opportunity to redevelop their waterfront from an industrial site to a multi-purpose area potentially revitalizing the downtown. With careful planning, anything is possible. It's exciting to witness. So this is before. "After" will have to wait a couple years.

The original is available.

I organize a weekly outing of urban sketchers for our local art guild. Over the summer months we choose locations throughout Columbia County to draw. These are a sample of the drawings I've completed. I started working in just black and white so folks could color them. This year I am adding color myself. It's more fun for me that way. Available as postcards and notecards.

The view point for this painting is from the docks below the Columbia County Courthouse in St. Helens, Oregon. The island is a public park assessable only by boat. A fellow artist and I carried out our folding chairs and paints to spend a couple hours capturing the view. It was March and normally still quite chilly but this particular winter was a warm one so the leaves arrived early on the trees. The clouds came and went as did the wind so the conditions were constantly changing.

The Sailboats at the Marina
Watercolor, pen and ink

A fellow artist and I carried out our folding chairs and paints to spend a couple hours at the marina. I was instantly drawn to the sailboats moored on one side. The morning began clear but the wind picked up and slowly but surely the clouds moved in. By the time we decided to call it a day the rain was pouring.

This piece was created using archival quality Sennelier watercolors on 140# archival quality cotton paper. As a part of your collection it will stand the test of time. It's a small piece - 3-1/2" x 8". Recommended matt size 9" x 14".
