Victorian Lady – Figurative Oil Painting

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Victorian Lady 9 x 12 oil Along with my landscape painting, I’m getting interested in figurative work, and occasionally make time to paint from a live model as I did this last weekend at Randy Higbee’s studio in Costa Mesa. The assembled painters had the opportunity to paint this lovely woman, Toni, wearing one of [...]

King Charles Cavalier Puppy Portrait – “Precious”

Friday, January 29th, 2010

“Precious” Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Puppy 6 x 6 oil on canvas panel SOLD (please inquire about other animal paintings) I saw this little pup last weekend and begged the owner to let me take a picture. I always enjoy doing animal studies and the challenge of fur and dramatic lighting made it a special [...]

The show will run for six months beginning Saturday, June 23 [...]

Hispanic Man – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

Hispanic Man – 8 x 10″ oil on canvas No, I am not putting landscape painting aside; I will continue with it as always, but I am interested in doing some portrait painting in oil, which has an entirely different feel and way of working than portraiture in watercolor. This was painted in one session, [...]

­ A Life Drawing

Wednesday, January 16th, 2008

Female portrait – for practice – charcoal on newsprint One of my goals this year was to take a life drawing class – working from a live model. I’ve drawn from models on some other occasions but i was never close enough to get a good look at the head, and the models were nude [...]

Goldie

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

(detail) Goldie 9 x 12 oil on panel Today’s painting is a portrait of an anonymous golden retriever I’ll call Goldie, although she looks like a Molly, too. The portrait is actually head and shoulders but I thought I’d take a picture of a closeup of the face since that’s the part I worked on [...]

­ Thank you again, EBSQ

Tuesday, August 28th, 2007

For the second time this summer, one of my paintings has been chosen as EBSQ art of the day. EBSQ is an organization of self-representing artists who sell their work on eBay, and I’m delighted that the curator chose this as an example to represent the weekly theme of Portraits of Men. In the studio, [...]
