Apple & Pear

Pear 9x12 pastel
There is nothing more basic than painting a piece of fruit. I plan to try again tomorrow!

Apple 9x12 pastel
And here is the apple to go with it. Backgrounds are much closer in color ... probably should take more time to shoot these correctly!

NYC Times Square 2012

Times Square
9x12 on pastelbord


My reference photo on the right and on the left a small copy of a Jim Beckner city scene that I loved and am inspired by. Note the stellar light source; window well on a gray snowy day?
 {sarcasm}. I need a studio upstairs one day ...

Sketch in the layout with charcoal or pencil


Block in sky colors

Block in colors while telling myself OUT LOUD to keep it loose. I tend to start drawing and get caught up in details.

Almost done ... go back to the top!
