Bouguereau like painting...

In my adult oil painting class, when working on the portrait, we often start with a painting of a long dead master.  I like to have my entire class on the same page when teaching drawing or painting skills, both of which are taught during this process.  I also like to leave room for each individual artist to have fun and create their own image, rather than an exact copy.
Here are the original photos and my finished painting.  Notice the things I changed to make it my own. If you are interested in purchasing the finished painting, feel free to contact me.

Standing Nude

I really enjoy group painting and on occasion have a chance to paint the human figure in a local group of painters.  This is a painting from one of those sessions.  To bid Click Here  This link actually takes you to this painting but also has links within the ebay auction site, to my other art auctions.

Spring Creek in Oklahoma

A hundred degree day in Oklahoma sent us to the creek to play.  While there, between floating and foraging, I got a chance to just sit beside the peaceful, pristine waters and paint these two paintings.  They both started out as sketches and then were completed back home in the studio.  I still didn't want to lose the sketchy immediate, feel of the original response so I stopped here.
To purchase either one you may send me an email.  $200 each, or take your chances on ebay where they are both on auction beginning at $145 with no reserve.  Click here to bid and visit the rest of my painting auctions.
