Plunkett House at Beazell (OilPainting)

On Wednesday the V&V group met up at Beazell Memorial Forest. I painted the old 1870's Plunkett House and barn. It was overcast but I decided to have my way. Mother nature showed her displeasure by providing some thunder and a few raindrops.

Watercolor In Progress

I have been working on this piece for a while now and need suggestions. It is 22X30 and is a scene from the French Hotel in Berkeley. All the models are getting tired of holding still.

The Borgo Kitchen

This painting started out as a watercolor. I then added some ink, then some guache and finally some pastel pencil. So I guess it is mixed media. It is based on an outbuilding kitchen at the Borgo Pass Vineyard.

Squirrel at Silver Falls Lodge

This is an update of a painting I did last year at our Silver Falls paintout. I updated the entire painting and then added the squirrel.
The painting is a 9X12 oil.

Models at daVinci Days

At this years daVinci Days we again hired a model (Laura) for the Art Guild Booth. A few of us did oil paintings. Mine featured Laura as well as a young future model. Unfortunately we had more lookers than artists.

Oil Painting from Mitch Baird Workshop

We attended an excellent 3-day workshop last week with Mitch Baird.
He used this scene as one of his demonstrations. This is my interpretation. I added the tractor for added interest and because I like tractors.

Watercolor- Harrisburg, OR

Another painting from a Vistas & Vineyards event. I started a representational drawing from the street level and later "wonkied" the scene and raised the horizon to the second story of the larger buildings.
Lots more interesting now.

Two Vistas & Vineyard Oil Painings

These are two oil paintings from our last two Vistas & Vineyard outings. One is the old smokehouse at the Finley Wildlife Refuge and the other is a Serracenia Flava at Dancing Oaks Nursery.
