Color Charts

I'm so happy that I finished my color charts for the Academy of Fine Art just in time to start back next week!  We have 6 charts to complete and I had set a goal for myself to get them done this summer.  I'm sure there will be some tweaking here and there but for the most part, they are done.  What a great exercise in figuring out the color combinations, I'm always amazed at the beautiful colors that come out of a color chart!

House on the Lake - Commission

Oil on 12x16 Canvas

I just finished a commission for a friend as a gift to her grandparents who are going to be celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary!!  That is just so amazing and wonderful!
This is their house and I just loved the huge trees on the property overlooking the beautiful house and the glimpse we get of the water in the background.  I hope they will love it, I know I loved painting it!

A Very Dangerous Beach after Jack Vettriano

This is my submission to this month's Painting From the Masters blog.  This month's selection was chosen by Azra Iqbal.  I hope more painters can join us in replicating master paintings as a way of learning, it's been fun so far!
