Paranoid




Paranoid

They live in fear of being discovered, or so it seems. Not all is at peace in the islands.

Stepping Forward




Stepping Forward


The main figure is of “D” sketched in a life drawing session a while ago. Today I added a world intent on devouring her.
She still manages to step forward in spite of the effort.
I think it’s the smile.

Hidden Environment

Hiding beyond each pose
The missing environment
The setting for the drama
She appears to expose
A blank space to be filled
By poorly veiled ghosts

Second Week in Orange, Now Red




Second Week In Orange, Now Red

This morning was the second week “R” modeled in the same pose for the Independent Painters Group. I painted her from a different vantage point in the studio, in acrylics this time.
My first pass on her orange dress was with red paint. I never did get back before the pose ended to add the orange highlights. Last weeks watercolor attempt is a much better painting of her dress color.
