I plan to post current paintings on my blog site. I'm not much of a writer but I do love to paint. I do oils and pastels and I teach workshops. I plan to sometimes post demos and talk about how to create a painting as well.

Love to do this exercise with my students. The student can draw out the object in value using charcoal. Then, when you apply the color, you can only use ten strokes. This forces the student to think hard about the color and value and direction of the stroke before applying it.
The onions are a continuation of this. Starting with just ten strokes and then adding only a few to complete the painting.
