Pescadora Valenciana copy of Joaquin Sorrolla

                                                                           12x16 oil

                  Working from a Sorrolla. It came out well for me. That basket (canasta) thingy wasn't to well defined in the ref. but I think the face it where you want to look.

                        I worked on this for 2 hours. I started to lose control, so this is where I stopped. That eye to the left is in the darkness and I messed it up at the end today.

virtual paint out

                                                                    6x8 oil

              Image from Googles street view. This is for the Virtual paint out blog. You just use google's street view of the location of the month, Canary Islands, and if you see something good paint it. Now I have to see if i can do all the email with links and info to go through the first time. Yeah, fingers crossed on this one.

Saturday painting

                                                                     12x12 oil

              I worked on this for 3 hrs. and still couldn't quite get those eyes to turn upwards. I'll just say she's in a daze, thinking "I hope he gets my eyes right".
