Pink Dogwood

Took a day off and painted in the studio from
9:00a.m. to 5:00p.m. Its the toughest job you
will ever love. Had fun painting some dogwood
branches from the yard. Turned out an Oriental
looking painting that day. Enjoy!...ED

Spring is Here!!

Painted at Skylands Sunday. It was windy,
temperature was on cool side 45°-42° with the
wind chill. Lots of light effects with sun moving
in and out of the clouds. Nice day, was to cold for
bugs. Felt good to come home with a Spring sketch
for a change. Enjoy! ED

Spring is not here yet!!

Went up to Ringwood Sunday morning.
The wind was chilly, about 29° we set up
in the south part over looking the lake. The grasses
were a bright straw color in full sun. It was next to
impossible to to get the value of the grasses bright enough.
With the help of a little Permalba White w/ linseed oil and
cad yellow medium, I managed to get a little closer.
It was a great morning....Enjoy ED
