It's been a while since I posted anything. There were a few distractions that, thankfully are now out of the way. I've been painting in my media of choice for the last few months and am pleased with the results. The more I get to know it the happier I am to have discovered it.

These are a couple of recent portraits. I'm not attempting to capture the reality of the person just the impression and according to the people I've painted so far, that's succeeded. In each case I've painted the person in one session using oils and tempra. The amount of tempra is very little. Most is in oils. It's very instinctive for me to work like this. A lot of good energy is created though it seems to be freaking out some of the other artists that I'm sharing the model with.

Got to be a good sign.
