"The Red Gift" 6" x 6" oil

This series has certainly been fun to paint and it is great to be painting again after a long time off.   I actually was hesitant to paint and felt out of practice which goes to show that you really need to paint often to stay in practice, to make bold strokes and have the confidence to do so.   I feel that my style of painting has changed a little, for the good I think!

"Sipping coffee" 20" x 16" oil

We had the same model as a few months ago and my easel was about in the same vantage point.   I was planning on lighting her from the right side but it did not work out for everyone so we changed the light to the left.  On this painting I used a palette knife in some areas.

"Lavaski, in charcoal" 26" x 20" charcoal

Thought I would do a charcoal instead of a painting on last Friday.  Used a large vine charcoal about the size of my thumb and broke it in half.   The paper is arches.

"23 down" 18" x 18" x 1.5" oil on wood panel

These are fun to do and especially when they are this large.   I love making all the little squares a different color value.

"The Present with Red" 6" x 6" oil

This set up was a box tied with a white satin bow set on top of a white tablecloth.   Even though the cloth was white the brightest thing was the shine on the satin bow so I had to make the tablecloth less white.   Actually the cloth was a warm white so I added some yellow and red to the white.  I could have made it grayer or more blue but the shadows have that hue.  So there you have it, the story of the box.

Swirling Hair 18" x 14" oil

She was sitting in front of a gold leaf panel and it had a greenish quality to it.   Didn't know if it would work with all the other colors but looking at it now it think it works.
