GIRL IN A STRIPED SWIMSUIT PLAYING AT THE SURF'S EDGE

10 X 8 OIL ON CANVAS
This is the finished figurative painting I started as a demo in my recent workshop. I livened up the flesh tones by adding some cool reds in the shadows on the flesh.   Also, brought out some patterns and colors in the surf.    A lot of thick paint was applied on the water with the reflections.  Keep in mind that oil paint applied thickly with one stroke of the brush or palette knife will have a freshness and luster all on it's on.

LEMONS AND TEACUP DEMO IN PROGRESS

11 X 14 OIL ON STRETCHED CANVAS
Although I like the fresh, abstract feel of this 45 minute painting, I plan to carry it a bit further.
Remember, look for the shapes, have a warm or cool dominance and allow the eye to be led around the canvas. Don't forget soften some of those edges!

PASTEL PORTRAIT SKETCH OF JOSEPH

PASTEL ON DARK GREEN CANSON PASTEL PAPER
The model did not show up today for open studio at the Foley art center, so we bribed the manager, Joseph to sit for us.  Not many people showed up, I guess, because of the lingering storm but we had so much fun. Joseph was a great model!!
I did pastel portraits for years in New Orleans, but have been working in oils for the the last 17 years, so I am a little rusty.

BEFORE THE STORM AT THE OCEAN'S EDGE

6 X 6 OIL ON HARDBOARD PANEL
I painted this oil quick sketch yesterday while listening to the roaring winds outside as hurricane Issac approached.  Still lots of wind but not nearly as bad in Gulf Shores,  Alabama as it could have been.
My prayers go out to those suffering with this storm.
I like the colorful sky and loosely painted figures in this painting.

PROFILE OIL SKETCH OF MACK

16 X 20 PORTRAIT SKETCH IN OIL
Mack modeled again at the open studio painting session at the Foley Performing Art Center.  He is a great model with his wild beard and hair, and craggy features.  The previous painting was a three quarter view .  I think profiles are actually the easiest view to paint.  This is a 2 hour sketch.
