Clouds, Oil
Oil on Canvas Pane, 11" x 14"

I've wanted to try two paintings from the exact same reference, but one in oils, and one in acrylics.
I did the oil this morning, and then the acrylic during our lesson this afternoon, with my private student.

Creek and Shadows, Palette Knife - SOLD

Creek and Shadows, Palette Knife
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 16"

Close Up Below:

I couldn't stand wasting a canvas, so this is the revision of a creek painting I did on May 14. It's almost completely changed, but it was nice to do a palette knife painting with color underneath. No pressure to cover every little nick and cranny.

Wednesday's Magnolia - SOLD

Wednesday's Magnolia
Acrylics on Canvas Panel, 9" x 12"

One of my students requested magnolias for our class this week, and mentioned that she liked the one in the brochures for Michaels classes. So I found instructions for doing a magnolia on the teacher's pages at Grumbacher (who sponsors the painting classes) and here's what resulted. I'm pretty happy with it, and hope that my "girl-tribe" will enjoy the lesson also.

Five colors plus white. Warm and cool red, Ultramarine Blue, a deep green and Cad Yellow Medium.

Woodland Spring Sketch - SOLD

Woodland Spring Sketch
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"

This one is a quick sketch, as you'll be able to tell if you click to see larger. I have two other pieces to finish today, so this one is fast and sketchy. But I do like the mood of it, and I'll probably use the reference photo again, larger and more carefully. Love those blues!

Bev's Grandson Fishing - SOLD

Bev's Grandson Fishing
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 18" x 14"

Done by request, a painting of one of my collector's grandsons, enjoying an early morning at the pier.
Bet you that grandpa is there too, but just out of the photo.

Cloud Study with Mountains - SOLD

Cloud Study with Mountains
Oil on Canvas Panel, 11" x 14"

I'm working on a larger, more complicated painting which is taking some time (one of my collectors' grandsons, fishing from a pier). So for a break, another cloud study, with an eye towards making the mountains fade into the sky.
