Hello Friends and Art Lovers
With a nip in the air, a few leaves on the ground, it is time to say so long to summer and hello fall.
Hoping to get you inspired, I taught a full day "oil painting from life" workshop in September and I have one coming up on Friday, October 20th in Charlotte, NC. One spot just opened up so if you want to join the fun, shoot me an email. Make painting a habit, improve your skills and enjoy the process.
Light and Shadow: Working to improve with Procreate
Sometimes my paintings can be confusing. In order to establish the light and shadow patterns more clearly, I am practicing making notans from the photos before I proceed to paint. Just practicing drawing the notan (ying/yang) with the Procreate app. Notanizer is a great app to help see the values too.
Take A Tour Of My Studio
I always like to see where artists' creativity takes place, so sharing a few shots inside my home studio. This wall easel system is a good way to make more room for all the other stuff.

On A Personal Note
Happy to share that Amelia (Millie) was born September 10 and her brother, Elliott (2-1/2) has plans to dress as a dinosaur for Halloween! Too cute.
