Jim's look

6x8" original oil painting on 1" deep board. Painted sides and wire hanger.
Let me just say that the art show this weekend went great! Wonderful visitors, lots of sales and fab weather. Phew! 
I didn't show this painting of Jim since it's still a tad bit wet...
Thanks again ya'll!

$200 - 8x10" original oil painting.
I'm busy getting a few more portrait paintings under my belt before my upcoming portrait workshop. When I'm not painting, I'm organizing and updating my handouts. I'm getting excited about the class. Just a week and a half away!
Here's the rough draft in charcoal pencil, which I did before painting. It's a mess but it's a necessary step. Also, a few pics of the painting process along the way.

$90 - original 12x6" oil painting on 1"deep wooden panel

My second piece from the awesome Peggy's Cove (just south west of Halifax, Nova Scotia.) I titled it 'bejeweled' since there are so many hidden little wonders amongst the boats. 
Below is a pic of my thumbnail sketch done in charcoal pencil on newsprint. My thumbnails are usually actual size, so this sketch is also 12x6".
