Last week I taught a spontaneous pick up workshop, had a super time, and painted this demo--De De and Cordelia painted awesome works, that had there own feel to them--when they send them on I will post them.
This was with a scarlet underpainting--fun, challenging--especially when one thinks of the darks as bright red...
Love painting this from Nancy's porch, a big rubber tree.
I have one more session for this or a little in-studio editing, cleaning up the back corner, and a tweak here and there.
This beach towel is a blast to paint...I have to finish it tomorrow, abut I am looking forward to that very much.
This I started today...at an hour I call time out, and since this is where I living it is easily to come back the next day...also this is California, and the weather is incredibly consistant day in day out. I am really stressing the spatial depth as much as possible.
Three Branches. I loved painting this, the spot was really beautiful...all the shimmering light was huge challenge.
This was at the top of Solstice Canyon, oh gosh, really great panoramic views of the mountains around the California coastline. One reason California is famous for the plein air painters is that the weather is virtually always sunny and calm--ideal for painting
This is in the Solstice Canyon, late afternoon, the light was shimmering--here I joined a group of plein air painters, great experience.
I went up hiking in Solstice Canyon, a little north of Malibu, California--great spot to paint, I even came across a neat group of people painting plein air.
This is the back of Nancy's home, she has a kind of beach/house/compound place.
