This is an exercising in how many ways can I find to render a pair, starting with some of the most basic. In this case on the IPad using the Art Set Pro App with the oil Pastel tool.

Rolling Up the Carpet #10 (WIP 1&2)

I was in the mood to do a panorama, which works well in the plains, and maybe I’ll use it for my facebook bkgd panel? 7×14″ gallery edge canvas.

Here is my sketch before I painted over it.

Spring Brings Begonias

image

On my easel today is a painting of Begonias, stirred into action by the Spring fever I’m feeling. 6″x6″ stretch Gallery Wrap Canvas.

One thing I look forward to every Spring is my first trip to Medary Acres, our local Nursery. This is where I went looking for my subject.

Posing with my subject is a persistent Merlin the Cat. I’ve just decided he should be the star of a new painting, coming soon!

Warm vs. Cold WIP

image

I love color!!! Today, I’m doing an experiment with warm and cold underpaintings. The first is Cobalt Blue with gesso, and the second is Cadmium Red with a little Burnt Sienna. The grayscale photo shows they are of the same tone. I will paint the same lilly pads with flower on each. Hopefully I can post at least one of them later today.
