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.
