Paintings in Watercolor & Mixed Media

Nine Zero Four

Nine Zero Four

Transparent watercolor

This watercolor is part of my series of the Union Pacific engines. The abstract shapes and bold colors captured my attention!  I used my camera to compose the designs and it’s not until I start the actual painting process that I notice more details. I edited this quite a bit and just focused on the steps leading onto the compartment. It was painted specifically for a competition in mind, as I usually do not paint abstractly — so it was a challenge.  The main pigments I used were cadmium yellow, gamboge, purple, thalo blue and quinacridone red.
