A study for my next painting:
The left side I toned the background with burnt sienna, the right with ultramarine blue. I played with the yellows too. The left is predominately cadmium yellow deep and the right is lemon yellow.
6" x 6", oil on gessoed mat board
And some more portraits ---all sepia ink on paper:
And... today when I was doing my mustard bottle study, my boys were drawing with me while I painted--- I'd have to say, one of my most favorite ways to spend time.
My oldest, 8, did this---A fly over grass. I love his red eye and curled proboscis.
