A new series of paintings...
Working in series is the best way to set an assignment for myself, I learn so much when focused on one subject and know what it will be when I sit down at my easel.
I considered a series of California landscapes, but realized I would miss painting objects, and thought I really should paint portraits, my weakest subject and the one that needs the most practice.
To make it interesting and fun, I decided to paint a landscape, an object and a portrait each week beginning in February. Here are my first paintings:
Road outside of Willits, Acrylic on board, 12"x 9"
Onions, acrylic on board, 12"x 16"
Labrador, acrylic on board, 11"x 14"
