    I can't see the whole painting at once, but what I can make of it looks amazingly good for a first painting!

    Above is a little detail of the cottages from the painting - I really enjoyed the way the form of the buildings is thrown out by the dark clouds behind and the shadowed hillside in the middle ground - great fun! More to follow I'm sure...

    thanks!
    Hmm - what a funny coincidence:

    Ramon, have you tried using warm and cool blues and warm and cool yellows (including ochre) and mixing your own greens? As you already know, I'm sure, most color in nature is broken color and will be a mix of red yellow and blue. It's amazing how much of a lawn, (or the leaves on a tree), is not green at all!

    About that water scene...I enjoyed the close up photo. It's great to see you playing with really putting the paint on! Did you use a knife?

    Nice Tom! Very dramatic Is it a self portrait?

    Maxine: I use a double primary palette and mix my own greens for the most part, though I have recently added viridian. I will keep a lookout for the warmer notes. Thanks for the advice!

    Teena: Thanks The water is painted mostly with the knife, although I did go over it with the brush when it was dry. It still needs a lot of work, so I might have another go at it with the knife.

    Today's father's day, so it seemed fitting to paint my dad. He sat for a little while, and I started the background when he took his rest. I'll finish it in the next few days.

    Here's a figure that's mostly finished from the Art Student's League (need to fix a few edges on the figure and flesh out the background a bit), and a portrait from Marvin Mattelson's class this past spring.

    hi Dose, nice portrait!

    Are you in Santa Fe? At Tony's studio perhaps? Where did you do that portrait of Raven, if you don't mind me asking?

    @Art_Addict: I'm in NYC. The portrait of Raven was done at the Art Students League here. I believe I heard Raven mention that he'd recently moved from New Mexico, though.

    @Pancho: thanks! Love that landscape- I think it's your best piece yet.

    Thanks Tim

    Uriel, it's called the Pier Cafe and it's in San Diego. It's funny because I've passed by it for years and have never gone in

    New one from me, unfinished backyard sketch

    Sergio, it's amazing that you can do these so well and so quickly, but imho you shouldn't put the time spent on each one in your blog, it devalues them. And I can't believe that you sell them so cheaply, they're easily worth 10 times the price you're asking. Just a layman's opinion.

    Donna from the Art Students League. Need to clean up a few edges, but generally pretty happy with this one. Would have liked another couple days, but isn't that always the case? She's such a wonderful model and so nice- wish I could have gotten a little better sense of her personality into it...

    How do you figure it devalues them? I'm asking honestly, because I want to know your reasoning.

    Thanks for the compliment, also. Hopefully other people will realize the value as well, though that's a tall order in this economy...

    Showing the time may give a potential customer a certain mentality, an opposite one to what they might think if you for example had a 40 hour painting shown. Putting the time may keep them from noticing just the quality of art it is and may instead break it into some hourly wage kind of thought.

    I agree that they are way underpriced, but I understand your position with the economy.

    "A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed

    I guess there is a point there, if a viewer operates under the impression---as do many people these days---that time invested=harder work=more value. However, this mindset fails to recognize that each new work is informed by everything that's preceded it. Each new painting could be 20+ years of cumulative experience in addition to all the study of master paintings, reading, material expenses. Many people might not recognize that, though.
