    A plein air painting from a park by my house. I have a lot of respect for people who are good at painting outdoors. It's super difficult.

    excellent work

    like your approach very much, some of the best stuff I've seen here, congratulations! one little criticism and I tend to fall into this trap myself, don't use the same color mixes for each situation. Even though the lighting might be the same where you paint, each person's colors are always different. Landscape painting is the greatest color training you can get, your bridge painting is very very nice, so keep doing those too.

    Bushido- Thanks for the comment!

    mkmanoj- I agree that an oil sketch usually precedes a final painting. At the moment I'm using these sketches as purely a learning tool. Thanks for the comment.

    The first painting is an hour and a half oil sketch. And the second is a 20 minute charcoal.

    Thanks for looking.

    Here's another oil portrait sketch from last week. This is of a friends daughter who sat for a portrait at one of my local artist groups.

    Hey the stuff is looking good. My only comments are you have a tendancy to elongate everything, especially facial features, so everybody seems a little pinched. And your light/color choices could be a little pickier to get things to really show form and plane changes. But good job, not easy painting from life.
