Day 837 Its Saturday

Sorry that its a little late today…the day got away from me!!


My finished painting today.  Ilania Acrylic 24×28.  I painted this in about an hour.  I used large one inch brushes on most of her.

This painting is alla prima which means that the brush strokes were laid down in one stroke after I drew her.


Here she is at the second break. I had only worked on her MAYBE forty minutes at the time.  I drew an ink sketch first and forgot to take a photo of it…
Really pleased with the way she turned out! A definite keeper!!


Cathe Dennis 24×30 acrylic Always like the sketchiness of her work and the brush strokes.  As Drew Murphy who was off hunting likes to say the one thing we can do that a photo or the computer cant is brush strokes.


Al Beyers HUGE oil.  This one is about 4 feet long and two or two and a half feet wide.  Alot of ground to cover in an hour and half of painting.



Marilyn Hartleys beautiful painting.  I think shes acrylic. Its quite large close to 24×30″  Always love her work.  Very sketchy thin paint.


Alex who hides in the corner and ERASES these every week…I am going to buy some canson to give him and trade him for some of these lovely conte sketches. Big full sheet of canson mi Teinte


Lee’s Conte crayon.  He does alot of vigorous sketching with slashing strokes.  I finished early and was watching him draw.  Quite interesting.



Coach’s athletic Ilaina. She is definitely athletic but not quite this monumental.

img_0150Rachel Miller continues to impress me…she started sketching a year ago and watercolor only a month ago!! OH MY…she has talent!!


Alexis is another newbee and shes coming along!! The more I look at this one the more I like it.

Its Saturday time to watch Father Brown on PBS.
