I have been stepping out of my color-blind box a bit and trying to paint. I have enjoyed myself, keeping the paintings small and manageable, producing a painting a day. This is the last one I completed. I figured that since it was of fruit, and since fruit trees are perennial plants, that I was safe.
I may be reaching here, but you be the judge.
Have a great week.

Lots going on, but I am still at it, trying to produce as much as possible. When I saw that "Gesture" was the topic, I was soooooo excited.
Gesture drawing is one of my favorite activities. I attend several drawing groups in my area, and I live for the ones that have short-pose sessions. In fact, I have even participated in groups that will draw only two-minute poses for two hours straight!
The images above are all at different times, as short as 2 minutes, and up to 30 minute studies. I have tried to adopt this type of speed to the initial stages of my finished images, as I feel that it adds life and vitality to the work.
I hope you enjoy.
Peace Out! Have a great week!
