Bright Painting for a Rainy Day
I wanted to experiment with using a white ground instead of a toned one. Wasn’t pleased at first, but warmed to it as I worked longer. However, I prefer a toned ground going forward because it allows for more depth of color.
Two Models with Flowers
Finally complete, for now
Corner, Mt. Hope Cemetery
I like the simplicity of this image, as well as my use of a tonal underpainting to keep the lights and darks clearly separated. It was refreshing to work on this after I spent the morning doing more detailed work on the painting of Two Models, which I am getting ready for the Artists of Yardley upcoming juried show.
This is a portrait I just completed for the #dollars4dingers fundraiser that the Podcast A Pod of Their Own does each year.
Some Plein Air Paintings
From Joe Sweeney’s class and some on my own. Alice’s House and View Across the River can be purchased through September 26, 2021 on the AOY site
Yale Crew was selected for the Virtual National Exhibition at Denise Bibro Fine Art and When We Meet Again has been selected to be in the Ellarslie Open. Best of all, the Russell J. Efros Foundation is awarding me a grant to create a series of paintings of Women in Baseball. Time to get to work. I include a painting I began recently at the Thompson-Neely House in Washington Crossing Park. I will get back there on Thursday to do some plein air painting with instructor Joseph Sweeney.
I can create a Trompe l’oeil
As long as it doesn’t have to be really fine tuned. Maybe this is trompe l’oeil light. The title is Academic Male (My nemesis)
