Tulips #2


Hooray for spring! I have a few still lifes planned to think on some chromatic ideas. Here are some alla prima tulips, 12 x 16 inches, oil on canvas.

Sargent Copy

A copy of a Sargent drawing, in charcoal. I should do more of these. The magazine picture I was using was quite small, so I could only get an impression of what his strokes were doing. But it's so informative to copy someone else's drawing. After all, they already did all the hard work.

Article on Drawing

I have a demonstration article on drawing at www.createbetterpaintings.com. In it, I confess that I avoided drawing for as long as possible, until I realized how much I really needed it.

It's a pretty good online magazine too - there have been some great articles.
