Pepper study

4.5x7 incher from this morning (about an hour's worth of work.). The more I paint, the more I realize that I've no idea what I am doing.

And a little H.P. Lovecraft dedication in progress.

More apples and Wrens.

A pair of 4x6s from today. (~20 minutes each). There's something very satisfying about doing these smaller panels.
And update on the Fairy Wrens.Still a lot of tonal issues to resolve.

A pair of 5x5 inchers from today. Haven't painted cornflowers since the long-ago stint at the farmers' market in Abingdon, and it's kind of amusing to see the difference. The cornflowers below were done in August of 2012; those long panels have long since been sold.

The matter of presentation.

18x24 in progress. There's so many tonal things wrong with this guy right now, it's not even funny.
