New Painting Sketch

This is a sketch in oil I did the other night at a painting and drawing group I had in my studio. When I am just playing around I like to make oil sketches on canvas torn from a canvas pad, not on a panel. I tape the loose canvas on some plastic, paint it with a colored gesso (normally black) and sketch away. This was a still life apple I had set up for the group, it's about 5x7. When this drys I can and have in the past framed these small sketches under glass. SOLD

Two Landscapes

Abstract Trail, oil 6x6. This is from my mind and is what I see when walking the trail out at Ano Neuvo State reserve. In the fall and spring there are all kinds of colors and shapes popping up. This is very loose and abstract. SOLD

Forest Fog, oil 8x8. This is from a cropped photo I had of a forest with fog coming in. This is hard to pull off, this was a painting done before I did a smaller one for the 50 paintings in 50 day show. This one came across, I get it, but the smaller one I don't think worked as well. Oh well,

Three Cherries, oil 5x5. This was done as a demo I like doing fruit, it is fast and good practice and can be fun...good thing to do if you have to throw out bad fruit. SOLD
