Small Studies...

A while ago, I started painting small studies in my classes to illustrate the lesson .
Some of my students asked if they could purchase them, so I mounted, varnished and framed a number of them to show and sell as small works.
They are priced well below retail as they were quick impressions.
I have posted about half of the available images.
These painting will be available for sale at the Winslow Art Center in Winslow WA on Bainbridge Island, Friday December 12th and Saturday December 13th.

A Bend in the River
12 x 16
Painted to illustrate the power of using fewer pigments
A Peaceful Place
 12 x 16    
We painted this image together using several different color combinations                
Apple Basket

We each painted a copy of this from a black and white photo to see if we could find warm light, cool shadows and reflected light. I had the students work very quickly to not overthink.

Bagno Vignoni

In this class exercize, I gave my students a black and white photo I took in a small town in Eastern Washington, and a copy of a winter painting by Russian Impressionist, Isaac Levitan, and we attempted to merge ideas from both images.
