Watercolor France

I have been wanting to improve in watecrolor for some time.  Really good watercolorists amaze me.  The process is so different than the way I paint in pastels or oils.  In those, I create shapes by both positive and then carving with negative ones to define things.  In watercolor, I feel so much is drawing and thinking where things go.  Anyway, here is an attempt..a French scene.

"Thursday Nights at the Pub"

My 8 x 16 oil on canvas demo from this morning.  What fun I had.  I keep trying for looseness but recognizable...characters and movement but not portraits.

Landgrove Inn

The wonderful Landgrove Inn where I teach Figure Painting in Oil or Pastel appears on this podcast.  It is a wonderful inn with a great studio building where some pretty great artists give workshops.  I am honored to be among them.  Tom and Maureen are the best hosts and the food is amazing too!
I'll be teaching there June 26 to 29, 2017

Kenmare, Ireland

Still missing and dreaming of Ireland.  This gorgeous little village is Kenmare on the Ring of Kerry.   We didn't paint in this town...too crowded.  But that didn't stop me from taking photos.  9 x 12 oil on board demo from Monday morning
