Portrait Sketches

The following two oil sketches were done at the Arts Alive Gallery Portrait Sessions.
Each done in about an hour. Haven't done portraits from life in a long while, so these sessions are a real treat...

Apple Blossoms

This little painting is number 7 in a series of paintings from photograph. I used all transparent oil colors except the white which is a mix of zinc and titanium.

Yellow Squash - SOLD

I know this sounds a little crazy, but this painting wanted to be painted. I love the large eucalyptus leaves and the yummy yellow squash.
