A painterly sketch using just my round brushes.  I usually use a flat so this was a stretch for me.  The oldest brush without a point was the best one for this painting.  It started to look like one of … Continue reading

Day 25: 30-n-30

Actually this is from last Sunday’s Worship service.  It was very interesting.  When I talked to God, all I got was shades of yellow and the composition.  I painted the canvas with grey gesso the day before and the yellow … Continue reading

Day 19: Plenty Happy (Sep 2015)
