A New Day

24″ x 30″ Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas with painted edges

This is a studio painting from one of my photos taken from the car window early one morning.  I was trying to get the feel of the lifting fog as the sun rises.

Red Barn

Red Barn 6x8

6″ x 8″ Oil on panel

This is a study that I did at a workshop given by John Poon on the fundamentals of landscape painting.   We worked from projected images.  The weather was not condusive to outdoor painting.

As I recall, the first day John talked about the steps of painting on site.  First, design and sketch the scene.  Second, block in, looking for light and shadow.  Third, adjust value, color, shape and edges.  Fourth, put on the finishing touches.
