Bright Light on Cole, Watercolor by Brian Bailey

My last few posts have been about oil painting but over the last week I’ve been back to working with watercolor.  Both offer so many possibilities and have distinctly different feelings, both in appearance and application.  Most recently, I’ve been busy working on a couple of commissioned watercolor paintings. I’ve never mentioned it here before, but if you are interested in having me do a drawing or painting for you, feel free to contact me either here or at my Etsy store, ArtFromBrian.

I also revisited one of my favorite subjects this week, the shadows and brightly colored buildings of Cole Street in San Francisco. I love the translucency of watercolor and trying to build a surface that sparks a feeling, something like a memory of the places I’ve been.  If you’re interested in this painting, you can also find it at ArtFromBrian on Etsy.
