Wet Sand - 1

Wet Sand - 1

16" x 12"
Oil on Hardwood Panel

This painting was very enjoyable.

The design was pleasing and I could move it around and try different effects.

I like the unity

Oil on Panel

The small study was done to explore design.

It does not have the right shadows to be very workable for me. As noted before the camera setting make the blue much higher value than the painting.

I like the pose and wish that the photograph had different lighting.

Those flowers look  pretty darn washed out!

Sometimes a design doesn't work for me however the model is so cute I decided to post it anyway.
Lori is standing in our back yard when we lived on Laurelview in Carmichael. Back in the peaceful days before children, etc.

Aw, serenity.

A little play with a cool palette. I enjoyed pushing the colors around and arranging the design.

Except for Gwen the colors are very cool and low key.

As I've mentioned before  she makes me smile and her simple gesture was expressive. Besides it was either this or paint the bright cowgirl boots she wore later in the day...

Life will always be interesting with Gwen.
