I found a reference photo that I took a few years back of a river in Texas, and used it as the basis for a painting. I am working towards a looser, more colorist style. This was tons of fun to paint
I have decided to try plein aire painting. Below is a study of a small bridge that I completed onsite in 3 hours. I realize that working onsite means working faster than in the studio, and I wanted the spontaneity and sense of light that comes from this approach.
I spent a couple of weeks in Vancouver, and loved it (especially the good coffee and riding the SkyTrain). Here’s a painting based on a few photos I took of one of the beaches there.

It looks just like her! My friend is happy with the result.
I love the beach in the summertime. This latest painting reflects that love. “By the Beach” oil, 16 X 20.

“Faith 2”, oil, 16 X 20, canvas wrap.
