I found this painting yesterday while looking for another. For some reason, I didn't like it at the time that I did it, maybe two years ago, but now I do... I sat in my car and painted this, left out a lot of houses on the opposite shore.

If you have questions about using oil paint, like should you wear gloves when you paint, or what does fat over lean really mean, you might want to listen to Leslie Saeta's interview with Robert Gamblin, founder of Gamblin Oil Paints. Lots of good info, and you can listen while you paint.

Recently I wanted to know how to pull up wall-to-wall carpeting. Where did I go? Youtube. Want to learn about playing a musical instrument? Youtube. Bake a spherical concentric layer cake that looks like Jupiter inside and out? You guessed it.
Personally, I spend (too much) time looking at painting videos. Zimou Tan has a number of time lapse videos of drawing/painting the portrait that are great. He's a master.
Of course, there's no substitute for doing the real thing. My 4 Color Portrait class is starting next week at the Portsmouth (RI) Arts Guild and there's still room if you want to sign up. It's geared for beginner and intermediate portrait painters, with live models.

I can't seem to get enough of these umbrellas. The orange and blue make such a great complementary color scheme.
I will be teaching a workshop on "Color mixing for painters" at the South County Art Association in Kingston, RI, next week, March 19 and 20, in the evening. It's appropriate for beginners and intermediate painters who want a better foundation of knowledge about color. There's still room in the class if you're interested.

I knew all those scraps of nice watercolor paper that I saved would eventually get used- I cut them up into smaller rectangles, got out some watercolors I haven't used in ages and put some color in my sketch this morning at Louis', a great little restaurant that opens at 5AM on the east side of Providence.

A couple of musicians posed for their portraits recently- Tish Adams, jazz singer, (what a great hat!) and...
