The D.J. portrait WIP #1

Tuesday, February 28th, 2006
I thought I'd start the day off sharing another portrait. The D.J. will be done on my favorite warm gray Canson paper with NuPastels, Rembrandt's, Great Americans, and Tery Ludwig's.I've started with some general background colors of greens and violets pushing it to all four sides.

Since everyone is starting to paint their spring pictures I dug into my "photo" file and found some lilacs from last spring. This is 8"x8" painted on Gray Canson paper with my favorite selection of NuPastels, Rembrandts and Great Americans.
I also need to get back on track and finish up my Mountain Flower Series...maybe one tomorrow!

Happy Valentines Day!! This painting was done using "Reflective Times" as the sketch. It was painted on Wallis paper mounted on foamcore with NuPastels, Rembrandts, Terry Ludwigs and Great Americans.

Mountain Flowers #2

Monday, February 6th, 2006
This is the second ACEO painting in the series. The foreground is a lot simplier and just a suggestion of the flowers... I liked the idea of the fog in the middle ground.

Portrait Study

I've been out of town the last four days. I thought I would post a 45 minute portrait sketch from one of our models a couple of weeks ago. I'll post some more of the Mountain Flower scenes on Monday.
