Woman in Profile Front Lighting


"Woman in Profile with Front Lighting," Charcoal on Taupe Drawing Paper. 12 x16.  Sometimes with portraiture, it is not always about nailing the likeness. Sometimes, you just have to go with the flow if something is working and see it to it's end. With this one, I had an off night with getting the likeness but continued anyway focusing on the light. There's a rough yet sensitive quality about this piece that I like.

"At Old Wesbury Gardens,"


"At Old Westbury Gardens," watercolor on Bristol Plate paper 9x12. Had loads of fun at our local art league's 2014 paint out at this historic mansion owned by the Phipps family.  The paper was curling on the left edge when I took the photo.  It was my first time working PLEIN AIR and painting on Bristol Plate.

"Looking Forward,"


"Looking Forward," Live Model. Session 5. Approximately 18x24. Graphite on Rough Paper.  I think I am about done.  This became an exercise in getting the light effect. I think I captured the light.  For a more refined drawing, I would have to use different paper. This paper was very rough.
