Parker River, Newburyport
I have been in 'learning mode' lately, studying portraits, taking a portrait class and copying Old Masters' works in color and grayscale in oils. It's more difficult than I had anticipated. I painted this small painting when I needed a break in between...it's painted on Kitty Wallis sanded paper using mostly Terry Ludwig pastels and some of my new fav's, Diane Townsends. I did a quick watercolor underpainting and followed up with the pastels and contrary to my usual snail-pace, I finished this painting in one sitting!
On another note, I am happy to say that my two entries to the Newburyport Art Asc.'s Winter Juried Show, Part 2 were accepted into the show. Visit www.newburyportart.org for details about the show. I will post pictures of my entries soon!
Lastly, in addition to adding a morning class to my schedule, I am in the process of adding a one-day workshop...check my site soon for details!
