What's On The Easel ?

I'm working on this painting from a photo I took while walking in my favorite area in Cape Cod. I was attracted by the shadows made by the fencing protecting the dune grasses and of course the view just peeking through the shadowed path. I'll post the finished painting soon.

Winter Wonderland

This is the juried painting named Snowy Morning Walk painted on UArt paper using Terry Ludwig pastels. It's a small 8x8 and is from a photo taken on an early Morning Walk. This painting evokes the cozy feeling one gets when walking on a snowy lane in upstate NY. I loved painting this as the colors and touch were subtle and I had to be careful not to overdo. It all paid off as this was accepted in a national juried show. This painting is not for sale but I have some wonderful snow scenes to buy reasonably unframed. Send me an email if you are interested in purchase. You can buy a work of art for less than $100 based on size and shipping. Have a wonderful Holiday Season and thanks for visiting my blog. Scroll thru the blog there are some great recipes too!

What's On The Easel ?

I'm finished with The Runner and though I'm not entirely happy with the arms, I may try to rework but the arms have really puzzled me because of the foreshortening effect of the photo. If anyone has a suggestion, let me know!

What's on the Easel?

I think I'm finished with my Runner painting but I'm still concerned about here arms. The idea of foreshortened comes in to play here So who knows I may still have to rework her.

31 in 31 on Facebook With Gail Sibley

I am still working on The Runner and it will take a while to get her to look like my granddaughter but I'll keep sculpting till I get it right. I recently joined a Facebook group that attempted to post 31 paintings in 31 Days! Impossible for me I cheated a little and posted many of my finished paintings. I did start and finish one and have a few on the Easel including this one. It was a fun group hosted by a famous artist Gail Sibley, she also has a blog named How to Pastel check it out. So it's back to the Easel for me today and work on my runner.
