Winter Practice

Head  W2011 oil on canvas paper
Winter quarter wasn't my best production time but I did seem to increase my color sense thanks to Kimberly Trowbridge. Photo's never really do the paintings justice but it does seem to document a bit of progress. Now I just need to be able to get myself to the easel all by myself and begin to practice on my own. It's like kick-starting a car. I keep kicking the tires but nothing happens. Maybe I'll find the key soon.

Snow Cold Lonely Hellebore

Well, I looked out my kitchen window this morning and saw a very sad singular Hellebore who got very cold last night but was basking in the morning sunshine with snow all around.  The inside/out view resulted in this little watercolor sketch.

Today was Magnuson Park

Magnuson Park was bright and sunny with many cold spots.  In the sun it was warm, in the shade the ice never melted. Beth and I took the oils out for a spin for an hour or two.  Saw lots of snow capped mountains with blue sky and blue water.    Also, finished (for awhile anyway) my Self-Portrait #05. A pencil sketch on sketch book paper.   

Someday I'll learn how to take good photos of my work.  Neither of these are as bright or interesting as the originals.
