46 & 47

Last Friday and Tuesday I attended two painting workshops in Central Park with Danielle Hatherley, who is an excellent teacher.  Both days were very productive and educational.  I got to work a little larger than normal with my new paint box.

From Friday May 7th, Shakespeare Garden:
11x14 oil on panel


Tuesday May 10, Conservatory Water
11x14 oil on panel

  3. Conservatory Water is lovely...so relaxing...just seeing the boats out on the water partially hidden by the trees! I love the depth to the whole scene, and shadowing too! You are one amazing artist, girl!!! Glad you see you about...I was about to give a little shout out to see what you have been up to...and now I see!!!

  4. Both of these are great Jess. I like the first one best because of the way you captured the light on the trees. The little sail boasts in the second one gives lots of life to the picture.

    You asked about Luna the last time you visited my blog. She is part German Shepherd and part Samoyed. Good guess. She is such a good girl too. You would faint at all the dog hair she sheds though. It is in my paints and everything. Ha.. I still love her.
