cul-de-sac


Well. This piece changed a million times as I painted it. What a battle! But, I like it.

don't over think it



The spontaneity of life drawing is so wondrous. When you only have 20 minutes to finish a painting it turns out completely differently than if you had lots of time to think about it.

This is the same model from Tuesday night's life drawing session. Now you can actually see what she looks like!

life drawing studies



Last night's life drawing class. I worked with a 6B pencil and then added cadmium red and mineral purple to these 5 minute poses. I think I prefer them with a little bit of wild splatter (top one), it compliments the gesture aspect.

More motorcycles! I was very drawn to (no pun intended) the shadows the wheels made.

Art Show!



Our group art show went great today! There are about 20 artists in the show and we had a nice constant stream of visitors. The venue we use has wonderful high windows, 4 long walls and we set up cool colourful stands in the centre. I sold three paintings and a bunch of hand painted cards, including these two.

I drew this while walking down the street (looking for more motorcycles to draw actually!) and when this little pup passed me, I decided his name was Beans.

sit back and relax


I painted these motorcycles on site with my paint box on my lap. They caught my attention as they sat there, all in a row, waiting for me to paint their portraits.
