Figure


I was interested to learn that figure painter Crawfurd Adamson often paints using his charcoal and pastel drawings as reference. I thought I would try that for myself today and I selected a drawing from a stack that I did last year. I did this oil painting (from my drawing reference) on a 6 x 12 canvas panel. I am pretty happy with with the exercise..happy enough that I will do it again in the future. I tried to give it a Scott Burdick background!

Celeste, It was good to see you at the Kingstadt show last night. The show looked great and I was impressed with the scope and quality of your work.

Congratulations on a successful show.
