Last night i remembered Margaret Parker Brown´s beautiful plein air pastel of a costal scene from Trinidad, North California. I have not been at this place myself yet, so I decided to have a look at it on Google – and inspired by Margaret´s painting and the views I did find online I painted these sketches in my sketchbooks just for practicing. And again, like I did the day before, I started with 2 minute watercolors of different scenes to warm up.

Letzten Abend erinnerte ich mich an Margaret Parker Browns schönes Plein Air Pastell von einer Küstenszene aus Trinidad, Nord-Kalifornien. Ich bin bislang nicht selbst an diesem Ort gewesen, und so beschloss ich, neugierig wie ich bin, und inspiriert von Margarets Bild und den Fotos die ich online finden konnte, diese Skizzen in meine Skizzenbücher zur Übung zu malen. Und wieder, wie auch schon am Tag zuvor, habe ich mich erst einmal mit 2 Minuten Aquarellen von anderen Motiven „warm gemacht“.

  1. So funny because when I first saw that rock, I was thinking it looks like “Grandmother Rock” I have painted that rock a few times… neat! You did a wonderful job and if you ever want to use any of my photos or paintings of the area, let me know, I have a lot of them! You get a lot done in 2 minutes! I need to try this out.

    1. Thanks so much, Margaret! It would be really interesting to have some good reference photos – this place seems to be magic and when i ever come back to California i´d rather like to visit. And I would rather like to see your other paintings of this place, too.
