Study Done Larger

This is one of the resulting paintings from the studies I posted earlier of our local park.

I think I got the shapes right but the light I am not so sure.

Amazing what one learns from repetition.

11 x 14



Here is my abstract.

After studying shapes and color over and over, I just let it flow.

9 x 12

This week's Daily Paintworks challenge is to paint snow.
Any way you wish.
This is a simple scene from the Sierra Nevada.

 Wednesday class was outstanding.
We were to bring a photo of a location with which we were very familiar.
And of course, simple shapes.

Here you see my studies.
These are the last four.
The first four were very basic, just shapes.

My favorites are on the top.
How abut you?

Next up will be the large painting.

What a wonderful way to learn!

happy days

Here is a little happy, happy for this dreary January day.
It looks like we will finally have rain and clouds.
So, flowers of summer to remind us of those happy days!

Tiny paintings are great for warm-ups.
This one is 5 x 5.
