This painting will be in exhibition at my upcoming solo show: "Le Mystére de l'Eau", at the Bibliotheque de Cauterets, France, September 3-30. Vernissage (opening reception) is on Friday, September 6, 5:30-730 pm. Come on and join me!! Watercolor above is of the Cirque de Gavarnie, in the Haute Pyrénées, France.

I have recently read: Venise - Aquarelles de Turner,  published by the British Museum. It has fantastic pictures of Turner's series of watercolors of Venice. I read that Turner used to draw non-stop in his sketchbook. When he died in 1851, there was a collection of more than three hundred sketchbooks!
