The SouthEast Iowa Artists' Studio Tour was this weekend. I participated at the local art center with portrait demos. This was one of the models I managed to paint in an hour and a half. I need to work on it some more but feel that I have captured his likeness well.

This was painted starting with a ground of burnt sienna and a little bit of ultramarine. I then wiped off my highlights and painted alla prima. Limited palette of ultramarine, burnt sienna, cerulean, cad. red, cad. yellow and white.

OK so I did not make 30 paintings in 30 days. Congratulations to the artists who did make it, lots of hard work and determination. I started out trying to do all of the paintings plein air and did make 14 paintings on site. Even this grouping was late.

Carroll and I had a painting class scheduled at the local art center. Four of the participants had to cancel, so the rest of us decided to go plein air painting at the local park. Blick Art Materials is having a contest using the Zorn palette and this is my entry.

Yesterday at Appleberry Orchards I managed to get two paintings done. The weather was so nice that I stayed til 5 to paint. It did start out sunny then cloudy that affected how I painted the leaves.

Nearby is an apple orchard/pumpkin patch called Appleberry Orchard. This is the perfect time of year for painting there. Great landscapes and lots of pumpkins still left in the field.
