Country Scene based on Elizabeth Tolley Demo

Started this one a while back and picked it up again last night.  Just adding more color and various touches.  Just a 6x8 canvas board.  I got a whole stack of these small canvas boards to practice various paint sketches.  With the weather finally getting nice I think I'm gonna' take my painting outside and try my first plein aire soon!

WIP - Carmel by the Sea

Came back to a painting I started over a year ago based on a picture a friend of mine took on a vacation.  Still much to do, but added in the beginnings for the flowers and foliage. Wiped out some detail on the stairs to redo later.  Man, stairs are tough to get right.

Been awhile...

Been awhile since I posted any new paintings.  Finally, finished this one I've been working on for awhile...or maybe it's not finished yet...I'm not happy with the upper left corner and the paper's not taking much more OP.   Not sure about the top part of the leaf on the left side has sunlight coming across it, but I don't I conveyed that very well.  Well, all part of learning!!
