Available Paintings

Wednesday, February 21, 2018


I recently ordered a dvd by Michele Byrnes,  she almost always paints people in her landscapes.  This is something I would like to get better at doing. I do some plein air competitions and I think if I could comfortably paint people in my street scenes the paintings would be better received.  I used some of her tips and did this painting just for practice. I want the people to be very painterly, not too much detail but yet feel like people.  I plan to do this a lot and get better, my first plein air competition is in May so I hope to have it down by then. This is oil on a 8”x 10”panel.   One of my groups critiqued it and they liked it a lot, that made me feel good.  Good of you to stop by,

Une très jolie composition... Une scène qui a une âme avec la présence de ces personnages.

Gros bisous 🌼

Can you believe it? I actually arrived here by clicking the link on my blog. Been ages since I did that. Some of the links don't even work anymore, it's been so long since I even checked. I love that you have stayed steady and are making continuous strides in your art, Barb. Bravo!
