Work in Progress
Like most everyone, I find these days very hectic. Shopping and decorating and baking take up lots of time. In addition, we are in the house-building phase, so I've been spending lots of time meeting with workmen and on making choices for paint colors, light fixtures, flooring, etc.
So not much time for painting this week. I am working on a larger painting for my weekly class. I bought a book about David Leffel, called "Oil Painting Secrets from a Master". I find his paintings a little dark for my taste, but I do like the looseness of his brush strokes. So I am trying to learn by painting a copy of one of the illustrations in the book.
This is just a corner of the canvas. Maybe I won't get arrested. I'm not trying to sell this or pass it off as my own. Just trying to learn a new technique. It's all I have to show for this week.
