                                                      9x12 acrylic on canvas  SOLD

This subject was for the latest Different Strokes challenge. When I saw the photograph I thought the fellow looked a bit tired, as if taking a break. The idea "a blues man" popped into my head so I chose to paint in shades of blue adding just a splash of orange and red for contrast. I also tried to be much more loose in my brush work.

"The Piggery"

                                                                6x6 acrylic  SOLD

Finally a successful day for outdoor painting! This charming little building was begging to be painted. What a challenge though! One minute the sun was shining the next dark clouds cast shadows. The wind whipped up and sent this panel flying several times and I even persevered through a rain shower. I'm pleased with the results and can only hope our next outdoor session has a more consistent clime in which to work.
