New portrait study

So let's see, it been oh...four months since I last posted a painting. I've been very neglectful of my blog and am trying to be disciplined to post more paintings. This is a recent one of a model from my weekly figure class.

Summer Peaches

I'm short on time this summer, as both of my sons are out for the summer and require quite a bit of attention! However, I've managed to squeeze in some small still-lifes. Here is a recent one of some summer peaches.

Hyde Park Observatory

This building is near where I live and is a landmark in Hyde Park, a neighborhood in Cincinnati. It's a great observatory and unique building!

Still Life with Copper Kettle

Okay, so this one is not one of my "small" is 14"x18"...but thought I would post it anyway. I did this one last fall.

Another portrait study

Hi everyone,
I finally have a new painting to post! This is a recent head study that I did in oil for my portrait/figure class that meets once a week.

Recent oil portraits from Thursday night class

Here are some recent oil portraits I did from my Thursday evening sketch class. Both done from models who sat for approximately 2 hours.

Trio of Apples

I'm finally getting back to my own painting, now that my son's big school project is behind us. I painted this simple still life of Macintosh apples recently. I really like the color variation in that type of apple.

I hope you enjoy the painting as much as I enjoyed painting it.

Outer Banks Cloud Study

I haven't had much time lately for my painting due to a school function and project I am involved with for my son's school. So, I am posting a small pastel painting I did at the Outer Banks in North Carolina last summer. I sure wish it was summer right now!

Portrait of Ebony

This painting, or oil sketch, is of a model "Ebony" from my Thursday night figure class. This one was hard to do. I'm not sure that I'm happy with it, but I like some aspects to it.

Two hour head study in oil

I did this painting awhile back - nearly a year ago to be exact. I go to a figure/portrait class every Thursday evening (one of the 'open session' - meaning no instruction - type of class). It was hard to race the clock, as I only had two hours to complete it, but it was tons of fun to paint!

This model is known to fall asleep during a pose. I'm thankful he didn't this time.

Floral Still Life-Sold

This is my first post on my new blog. This painting is a still life that I did awhile back. I sold it to one of my husband's co-workers, who loves flowers.
