Summer time family visits afforded a very enjoyable distraction from painting.  Now it’s back to the easel.  A few recent plein air ventures have helped renew the focus on art.  Cows are the subject matter du jour in the studio.  It’s good to be back!

 Also in the fray, a continued interest in drawing for the sake of drawing.  Here are two new ones, a pencil and a silverpoint.




My first painting video!  All the preparation for a Quick Draw that didn’t happen turned into a perfect opportunity to make a fast-paced video.  Check it out below.  The painting took about 45 minutes in real time, but this was sped up in the movie for entertainment value.  For those artists and friends who would like to know more about the process, please click here for a pdf that explains it all.
