In the studio 5/27/16

These small still lifes are based on photos I took during a trip to Colorado with my son, Garth.  I started both of them the same morning, the upper one first.  The larger one is 24″ x 30″.  The small format is unusual for me these days.  I’ve stuck with large-size paintings for a long time now.

I have a lot of small canvases ready to go.   I plan to keep at the landscapes but also do some studies.  That’s something else I haven’t done much lately.  With the large canvases, I complete the drawing on the canvas and jump in with the oils straightaway.
