Copper Kettle / Study

Color! The richness and variety of the orange in the kettle, fabric and flowers are complimented by the blue green of the foliage. To my eye this is irresistible!

Miriam Reading

This figure painting is based on a watercolor sketch done when Miriam modeled here at the house a few years ago.  I really liked my sketch and so I decided to try to paint it on Yupo.  Well, Yupo is like an untrained puppy, and I have to be prepared to be patient and adaptable.
I like the lively results!
