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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
