At some point it seems every artist does "the egg" It is difficult! But, in this demo, I repeated to my students the same mantra....don't think "egg" just observe shapes, colors and values.

Kids on the Beach

Just before warm weather but nice enough to be on the beach.

Demonstration April 4, 2011

A small painting that I may do larger but it served well as a demonstration once again of observing shapes, not just painting a scene. I found myself telling one student....don't paint the colors, paint the light.

Boats at Rest

As I dream of summer, this boat painting that borders on the abstract. I don't know boats but I strive to understand shapes.
