San Francisco Plein Air Trip

A little 6" x8" plein air painting I did during a San Francisco plein air painting trip with one of my dear artist buddies, Abigail VanCannon.  

Plein Air Mendocino

Plein Air Painting in Mendocino.  I accompanied my good  friend and artist Victoria Brooks to help out with her workshop at the Mendocino Art Center and had the chance to do this quick study the day before the workshop.   I love painting over on the coast and Mendocino is absolutely charming.  Since it was a quick study and quite cloudy, I did a limited palette: ultramarine blue, quinacridone red, hansa yellow and white.

Donuts Anyone?

I got on this donut kick and started painting this donut series.  After painting them and looking at them as still life objects I have no desire to eat them myself.

Another composition. I like the idea of seeing how many different compositions I can make with 3 donuts in a square format.
