Hay Field Under the Midwestern Sky
This started with a Sharpie Marker, which you can still see in places. Then I painted in acrylics. This was an ideal for a beginner painting class.

Rodeo Park Fall 2014
Yesterday we went to Rodeo park because it was close. The leaves are in their full splendor right now.

Final portrait. This was from photo references. I did not take the photos from the same angle as he posed so this was a little guess work.
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.

Jessica and I went painting at Appleberry Orchard. We had a great time painting and we also picked up some pumpkins for future still lifes.

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.

25 paintings in 30 days
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.

This is an acrylic painting. On this background I used iridescent acrylics, which are hard to show when photographing artwork. To get the transitions I used acrylic medium for air brush.

Rodeo Park plein air
It is challenging to paint cloudy, rainy days. It has been a couple of days since I went plein air painting and come rain or shine I was going.
