Oil on canvas paper, 9" x 12"
Local Rhode Island celebrity musician/ songwriter/ columnist Rudy Cheeks was our portrait model recently. He'll be hosting a show on RI PBS come October called "Meet me at the Met". Check it out!

I'll be teaching a portrait class at the South County Art Association toward the end of September, Thursday afternoons. We'll draw for 3 weeks, then paint using a limited palette of white, black, cad. red light and yellow ochre.

On the painting above, I added venetian red and cerulean blue to my usually limited palette. The venetian was more of a short-cut color, but I wanted to use blue to get a little lavender in the shadows. When mixed with yellow ochre, it also made some nice greens .
