Hawaii Watercolors: August 2007

After Italy, I went to Hawaii for a week with my family. Fresh from painting Italian dawns for a solid week, I felt ready to take on the Maui seascape with my watercolors and paper. In a strange twist of fate, my suitcase containing my watercolors was misplaced by the airlines, leaving me with only the colors on my disposable palette. As the week progressed, I ran out of blue, then green, then red...you get the picture. By the end of the week, I was painting in pure yellow!

A side note: Enclosed are two watercolors by my brothers Arthur and Douglas. It was fascinating to see how differently each used the watercolors to represent the view from our hotel window. I think they each did a great job. What do you think?
