First commissioned caricature . .

commission price. . . free to a friend.

Babsi needed this for her Thesis defense. I told her to use karate, but she thought this would be better.

Tree for Thursday

One that I did in the very beginning, but I like this one better.

Rain and bad lighting. . .

kept us from producing any paintings this week. But I stayed and did a pen and ink for my daily tree. I like it.

Four trees over three days

Not crazy about them, to little time to do them.
Although I do like the way the big one was going.

So no close ups this time.
And I did break out the watercolor pencils again.

Thursday's tree

Quick one. Did not get time to scan it last night, so just took a photo. Here it is.

Which takes care of my 'tree a day' for today.


Linda even ended up with a possible new patron.


I think Debbie was a little surprised how well her's turned out. I thought it was great.

Our first En plein air night.

Three of us showed up for the first of what will hopefully become a habit and I thought I would paste our results here. First is 'The gang' minus me, since I took the picture.
We worked for a total of about an hour and fifteen mins., and each came away with a finished painting.
I think all the results turned out pretty well.
Linda had so much fun she even created some new painting pants for herself.
Now all we have to decide is; "Are we drinking the wine before, during or after we paint?"

Here are the first two.QS# 2 and 3

Quick pencil sketches, done in about ten mins.

Ok, two done.

Will post tonight.
Having done two, does that put me one ahead in case I have a lazy day?


Tree a day for a year! QS #1

Well, hopefully a year. Want to get better at trees in my paintings. So, gonna start to learn to 'build' trees.

This one does not count. Done in paint to add color to this post.
