I struggle enormously with figure paintings. It isn't so much the painting of the figure, it's the resolution of the painting as a whole. Not sure how I feel about this one...sending out to cyberspace!

This painting is a composite of different photos I took of geese on some water. I needed to create a design that worked and then play with color choices that were interesting for their cool and warm contrasts. When I was almost done I realized that I needed to "push back" the geese on the left so that there was more of a feeling of depth.

Slightly Tweeked

So, I made some very small changes in order to make this painting more dynamic. Added a light green in the back for a better horizontal and darkened and brightened some areas.

One from a while ago. I was teaching on location and this guy was painting the building. I loved the shapes and shadows. Did most of it on location but put on the finishing touches in the studio
