Tangerine Bouquet


I recently completed a self study course from Mark Carder on still life oil painting. I really enjoyed the concepts in realism which I don't often strive for. I enjoy loose impressionism both in my art and in the art of others. But, the Carder method does provide great mixing and drawing technqiues. Here is my painting using this method in oil.

Happy Holidays


This was an experiment that seemed to work. I took simple gatorboard and used pumice mixed with gesso and make a ground with swirls...fun! it was a bit like finger painting. I let it dry and then sketched the ornaments and painted with pastels. The rough background really make it interesting. So, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
