Trees, Standing (and upcoming workshop!)

"Trees, Standing"  (pastel, 6x6 inches) click here to bid

Here's my second small painting from Sunday, after watching Terri Ford's demo (see yesterdays post) I was very happy with how this one came out; I was able to keep the fresh, spontaneous feeling that I like. This image was all about the shadows and the decisive and firmly planted trees. I almost called it "Standing Firm." Maybe I'll use that title on a larger version (ha - if I ever get around to it!)

This was another local-color underpainting. See it with the reference photo below.



Speaking of small paintings, here's a reminder of my first out-of-state workshop coming up soon on April 5-7, 2013! In Ulysses, Kansas, at The Main ARTery Kansas Fine Art Gallery (LOVE that name!) The workshop will be focused on miniature pastel painting (8x10 or smaller.) There are still a few spaces available! Click the info below for a better view..
