California Dreaming

California Dreaming...12 x 16 oil on canvas was my demo today.  I wanted to talk about the way the sky can keep the same value but change in hue to bring out the light on the trees

Seagull Beach

This is a 12 x 16 oil on board and a demo from my oil class.  I also posted the beginning...and you can see how loose it begins...just  a generalized view of what goes where in design.  Then a couple of steps towards the finish.

Pastels Today

Winery Cafe

These two 9 x 12 pastels are from today's efforts in the studio.  I had started the Winery Cafe in oil but decided to try it in pastel.  Worked for a few hours, then decided to do the portrait and it went very quickly.

Hillside and a fix

Hillside  6 x 9 oil on board

This version of the vineyard didn't work.  Although the colors at the shady bottom were green, in keeping them that way there was no connection between the yellow field of vines and the shadowed lower part.  So I changed them to more ochre so that it related.

some minor changes

 So, I made some minor changes.  Still not feeling great.  The kitchen was too wonky, now it's just a little less wonky.

I mostly worked on the middle person's face and a few hits on the guy on the right.

I think I liked the ideas better than the execution
