Main from Parrish



11" x 14" oil on canvas

You can view and purchase this painting here.

This is a view of Main Street in Durham NC, from a little park that's between Parrish and Main. The colors of the buildings are really surprising - it's not quite Rainbow Row or Alamo Square, but the buildings are very striking.

Painted on black canvas and gallery wrapped - all the edges are painted, so it can be hung framed or unframed.

May's Virtual Paintout was southern Chile. Scenes were limited - there aren't many roads in that area. But what scenery there was, was gorgeous.

Yoga, Astrology, Tattoos


8" x 6"
oil on panel

Somehow I missed posting this one. Something a little different for me. This is actually part of the Virtual Paintout's location of Washington DC. The larger street scene was also pretty cool, but this particular bit caught my eye.

Another entry into this month's Virtual Paintout location of Slovenia.

Some progress shots:

Working on a yello-ochreish ground. I sketched the scene with magenta, and here I'm putting in the shadowed areas with permanent violet.

The underpainting for the sunlit areas.

I decided to do the sky first. I usually save it for last, but I'm rethinking that approach. The sky colors the entire scene so it's a key element in determining all the other colors. I also did the road, which is reflecting a lot of the sky.

Now the brightest areas, especially the corner of the house where the sun is hitting.

The far trees, the houses in the middle distance, some more detail here and there. Almost done.

In the midst of this cold winter, we've had a few lovely weekend days. I painted this at Falls Lake State Recreation Area at the end of February. It's too early for much greenery, but the pines are always beautiful. It was wonderful to be outside in the sun!
