Looks like it's Sunday again, and I've been busy painting but this time finishing up a commission.
The 1st picture is of my palette, I work from warm to cool, I've had this palette layout since I could remember.The 2nd is of my work space, I have a large Boeing drafting table it can accommodate all my needs, lights, palette and plenty of space for reference materials. And the last one is the commission I just finished a month ago for a friend.

Here are some sketches from my recent trip to Italy. What an amazing country, I wish to return someday and spend a few months painting. These are just a few sketches from my trip. I took close to 600 pictures and I plan of painting large scale versions of these sketches and many more.

Hello all! This is my 1st and hopefully not my last post on my blog. This blog will be my watercolor sketchbook. Ill post plein air paintings and still lifes I paint during my times off, either at Sidekicks or just around town. I carry my watercolors everywhere I go so I hope to try and paint everyday.
This are some gloves I set up at the gym, a quick painting on a 7" x 10" hot pressed block. Using, of course Daniel Smith watercolors. Please feel free to leave me a post, I would love to hear what you all think of my work.
PS. Stay tuned Im putting the finishing touches for the re-launch of www.chelopez.com. Coming in Sept. 2007!
