The Old Man

I created this painting as the lesson for my next intermediate watercolor class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio.  This is done mostly from my mind, and I used a limited palette of Dragon's Blood, Payne's Grey and green.  The detailing was done by dipping the end of a kabob holder in the payne's grey into wet paint. The colors were added first wet-in-wet forming the face and then the detailing.

Which Do You Like Better?

The bottom painting is one I did last week for last night's lesson at Riverside Art Center.  The top picture is the one I did during the class period last night with the class (and afterward.)

Which one do you like the best.  Last week's painting is tighter and more stylistic and last night's is a little looser. Last night's painting is also cropped more tightly.  Last week's painting is more colorful. Which do you prefer?  I am curious!                                                                                 1

Boneyard WIP

I have been working on a new drawing for a painting from a photo by Carla Parris (Carla Parris photography).   It is hard to see and I apologize for that.

It is 30 inches across and 15 inches tall and is drawn on Fabriano Artistico 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.  It is taking me quite a long time to get it drawn.  Well - back to work!
