Girl with basket

The model was next to the Petaluma River on dried grass. The colors in the scene were beautiful and I tried to capture them in a 40 minute pose.

Quick color sketches in sunlight

These are each under 20 minutes. These paintings from the last few days were done at a workshop at l'Atelier aux Couleurs in Petaluma, California where I also teach. The instructor was Peggi Kroll Roberts who is awesome. She focuses the students to see the big shapes, light against shadow, covering the board quickly. If you get a chance to study with her or her husband Ray Roberts I highly recommend them.
