FIGURES IN THE WATER oil paintings

I am still working on these 2 paintings, mostly trying to add some interest to the water. Color and highlights and such.

 I am trying to draw people with more expression. The drawback of having models sit still, is they often look a bit glum, and their natural personality doesn't come through. I watch them when they are talking, and add a little smile or parted lips.

This woman is a hoot, but she sits very still (good), and tends to look very serious in her portrait.

Katy is a smiler 24/7, so no problems there!

Miranda too, has a lovely face in repose. I could draw her every day...


I am very happy to have several paintings accepted in the small works exhibition at 
Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado.

each of these little guys are 4x4", oil on linen.

Here are some paintings from the recent workshop at Ani Academy.  I always learn so much from Anthony Waichulis. 
These are all painted alla prima, from life. The 2 larger paintings at the bottom of this post need a bit more work, so stay tuned.....
