Three Cherries Once More

Acrylic on Panel - 6 x 6 inches

Again, I started with pre-mixing big puddles of the colors I knew I needed, and tried to keep the brushwork freer and looser.

Three Cherries Again

Acrylic on Panel - 6 x 6 inches

I started again, mixing my puddles first. It was easy to remember the colors I needed after painting the same scene yesterday, and by pre-mixing, painting was much faster.

Fountain

Acrylic on Panel - 8 x 10 inches

A quick study of the back field and the fountain in my mother's garden. I left out the fence, because, who really wants to add a bunch of static horizontal stripes into such a composition? Really.

Bicycle Girl

Acrylic on Panel - 6 x 6 inches

I've struggled with the values and colors in painting this many times. This time that was what I concentrated on most, not worrying about details in shape and form etc.

Red Cafe

Acrylic on Panel - 6 x 6 inches.

A quick impression of a sidewalk cafe in Charleston, SC. I love how they paired bright red plastic chairs with sky blue metal tables.

Fall Vineyard

Acrylic on Panel - 5 x 7 inches

The colors in Wine Country in the Fall are wonderful. The vines turning red and gold, while the grasses spring up bright green with the first rains.
