Opposite Ends

Working at opposite ends of my studio the last couple of days. When I get tired of brushwork, I can turn to pencil. When I am tired of black and white, I can turn to color.

Challenging myself with value issues. Working at creating depth on a two dimensional surface, certainly can be a workout.

The painting is signed. As for the charcoal... it will be a while longer.

In the Shadow Series #6

30x22" charcoal on Rives BFK

I am still thinking about a title for this shadow work. I captured it one day while working at the Los Angeles Arboretum. I usually enjoyed plein-air painting there, with my artist friends, but this day I was adventurous and taped a full sheet of the scrumptious Rives BFK paper to a board. I had already been quite successful with a few other shadows, which can be seen here. I wanted to see if I could push the idea a bit more.

I found an interesting shadow to capture, but it meant that I was actually crouched down under a few bushes. I am sure I was an odd sight. After I arrived home I set the drawing in the drawer, and worked on other work. I have been taking my time through unfinished work and this drawing called out to me. We shall see where it takes me... there is quite a ways to go.

I recently received a promotion for a free pad of Stonehenge paper. Last night I grabbed the easiest prop available, and had an enjoyable night drawing.

Weekend in The Hampton's - Final

Weekend in The Hampton's
20x28" watercolor

I picked up my professionally photographed image today, 
and it is wonderful to let the professionals do their job.
If I ever want to make full size prints, 
I can.

The weekend also was spent touching up some of my plein air paintings.
I will post them during the week.
Please check back.
