2017 Daily Painting Day 43

My second effort at the Botanical Center last night.  Perhaps a little too much going on?  Where exactly is my center of interest?  I think I have several areas competing.

2017 Daily Painting Day 42

There was an event called Social Irrigation at the Botanical Center tonight.  Several artists were invited to Plein Air Paint in the gardens during the event.  You could get pretty spoiled, they brought us cold water, chairs and when I finished one and decided to start another, they helped carry my art supplies.    A live band played, it was great!

2017 Daily Painting Day 34

Practice exercise applying Marla Baggatta's approach using a reference photo from the video,  much harder when all greens.  Try this 50 more times and I might have something

After attending two demos by Marla Baggatta, this is an attempt to follow along in her fall foliage
demonstration.  This was incredibly fun!  Now I have to do my homework!

2017 Daily Painting Day 32

Just got back from the 2017 IAPS Conference.  It was fantastic.  This is the unfinished portrait from my class with Gwenneth Barth-White.
