A few weeks ago I said I was going to post more figurative paintings... so here are a couple of recent ones. I don't consider these to be Daily Paintings, as I spent more than the typical three hours on each, but I thought you might like to see them.
Afternoon Laundry 14x9 in.
I started this painting with the intention of painting two figures but soon realized that just one made for a more interesting painting. Sabrina was standing with the basket resting on her hip, head pointing downward and the clothesline leading to her face. These subtleties were more interesting to me than what was actually going on...ahem...laundry.
Natalie 10x8 in.
This one's a straight forward portrait of my wife, Natalie.
Both of these paintings will be in the Richeson Art Exhibition next month (June).
