"Portrait experiment" 14in x 11in oil

In order to improve and grow, we artist are always trying new things and experimenting with different methods.   Today I used a limited palette consisting of titanium white, ivory black, cadmium red and yellow ochre.   I found that using those 4 colors simplified the color mixing process.   I will have to try it again.

"Blue Shoes" 14in x 11 in Oil on linen

The model got into this pose and at first I was thinking that she was holding so much tension.  After looking through a viewfinder I noticed that the pose was so dynamic!    Love the position of the legs and arms so I made it all about that.   In the three hours that she posed, I sketched it in two times too large, third time was the charm.   I had to realize that the center of the canvas was the hem of her skirt, then it worked out.

"Stacked" 6in x 6in oil

Lately I have been working hard on larger paintings.  I feel that I need to do some small daily paintings so when I went to my stash of items these little colorful plates, bowls and cups were saying "choose me".
