Outdoor Still Life

Here's a quick painting done outdoors,
with a few modifications from the actual images.
I didn't finish before coming back to the studio
and decided to do so only after the painting
had dried and I worked from memory.
Which, in my case, is a mistake most of the time.


Indian Woman

This is a quick study that I had posted before but
decided a background color change was in order.
I've added some stronger color to the whole painting
to give it more depth.

Clay Jar With River Rock

This is a quick still life study, 8" x 10" on
a gessoed board. It's in oil as well.
I haven't done many still life paintings
lately and this one felt good while painting.
I experimented with using MDF board
instead of masonite. It's a little rougher
in texture but the material has a great surface.
It's easier to cut than masonite but heavier.
Best for use on small paintings.

Glenview Stables

This is another painting from the day spent
at Glenview Farms just outside of Tulsa.
It's on the main road going into the
farm and these are the outbuildings just
before going into the expanse of open
It's oil on board
