3 paintings today

I completely missed the fact that it's Memorial Day week end and a lot of people are out of town. I had a wonderful model booked for the Saturday morning class and only two students showed up. Ugghhhh .
But I got to paint. These are only quick gesture paintings but the colors are dramatic because out model had hot pink hair- perfect!

I ran out today to meet with new studio instructor Siri France. Didn't have time to plan a new still life but I feel they are better with each repetition. Here's my 8" x 8" oil painting. 

Also note the new studio class coming up. Portraiture! Thursday afternoons 2-5pm with a model.

Here's the next one. It was an incredibly busy week end in the studio and I didn't get a minute to even think about painting but today I did!

I found some roses on the way in to the studio.

We have an exciting schedule of classes ! Stay tuned for a new portrait class in addition to the classes already listed.

#10 More Marbles

This will be the last of the marbles for a while. On to more items around the studio but it was good to just look at glass for a few paintings.

Day 8

Not all paintings are post-able. I worked on day 8 but not something I want to publish.

Day Seven

More stuff from the studio. People brought me lemons on two separate occasions. Painting glass always requires some concentration.

Keeping up with number 5

 Sometimes I put things out for students that I wish I could paint myself. In the afternoon Melissa worked on an ink drawing of this set-up. When class ended I moved it over to the painting area and painted this oil on canvas 6"x8".
