Description I have painted this great fishing bird many times in large format. My first positive watercolor attempts came with this subject They are still hanging in our home waiting for good mats and frames.
Karl Haugen, Clatskanie, Oregon Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement I currently work full time at a National Historic Park on the Northern Coast of Oregon. I find time to draw and paint almost daily. I enjoy transfering what I see commonly at work and from scenes around the Western United States. Taking photographs and working from imagination helps the creative process Eventually I will take courses in watercolor from the professionals but for now its self taught. Hope you enjoy what I have attempted so far... 1/16/10 Sorry it took so long to add some art but painting does go slow somedays. There are more lingering around but need a little more attention before adding... Enjoy! Another set of entries today 8/28/10 since Jan. I have had a great experience painting with Dave Bartholet here on the Oregon Coast. Very patient and extremely talented artist I had the opportunity to share a day with.. Karlos
