Ethereal East of Mendocino | allisonspreadborough
This watercolor on archival cotton paper was painted on location in the town of Mendocino, California. I love Mendocino and the morning view East toward the ridgeline yields a beautiful effect that I tried to capture. Image size: 9.5" x 11" Framed
Autumn Hike by Lembert Dome, Yosemite | allisonspreadborough
This original watercolor was painted from a reference photo of the imposingly beautiful Lembert Dome, Yosemite. My husband and I were fortunate to win the High Sierra Camps lottery to hike in the Tuolumne Meadows area of Yosemite around Lembert Dome. It was an incredible experience to hike in beauty each day and stay at six different camp sites. Image size is 15" x 17.25".
Dream Return | allisonspreadborough
Following a hike from Tomales Point in Point Reyes NP, I came upon this scene that pulled at my heart. I pulled my car to the side of the road and snapped a quick reference photo. I feel like I captured the dream-like atmosphere that I felt that late afternoon when I felt tired in my bones but light in spirit. I primarily used a wet-into-wet watercolor technique for this painting. Image size 15" x 22"
