Some Peacham paintings

Foggy Morning Peacham, 12 x 12, was my morning demo today.  Always trying to get away from too much green.  The other is an 8 x 10 of downtown Peacham.

Peacham Sky

Monday morning's demo...done from two different references.   The idea being not to be controlled by the reference but by your own vision.  8 x 10 oil on canvas

Wine Time

Wine Time is another struggle for me.  Not sure it's done and might do some tweaking.   Or might forget it.

I just found this video on line and also discovered that if you google me, there are others as well.  This does a pretty good job of showing my process...can't stand looking at myself but the painting shots aren't bad.  This was from a plein air through my gallery, Camden Falls Gallery, a couple of years ago.

Student 10 stroke work

Here are some examples of my students' work on the 10 strokes.  They were awesome!

10 stroke eggplant

Did some 10 stroke exercises with class today.  Along with practicing better brush strokes and really loading the brush, we also talked about turning form with color not value.

This was my only half way decent 10 stroke!  Some of my students blew me away though.
