I haven't done any of these little paintings for a while, nice to get back to them.

In the shade

Oil on canvas, 11" x 14"
Ann and I posed for each other the other day. She put me under a rose arbor, in the sun, a pretty spot but after half an hour I felt like a chicken in a broiler. I put her in the shade, and did this in about an hour. It was interesting to paint pale skin in the shade- it had to look cool and light, but at the same time, warmer and darker than her skirt. I'm fairly happy with the result, although it would have been nice to have another hour to work on it.

My plein air class at the Portsmouth Arts Guild starts next week, and there's still room if you're interested!

Coffee and dessert

Oil on canvas, 11" x 14"
I'll be teaching a plein air class in beautiful Bristol RI for the Portsmouth Art Guild starting in 2 weeks. The class will meet on Thursday mornings. Plenty of room left in the class if you want to sign up! Last year we had a really good time with great weather.
