Blog : In Art Pursuit

I enjoy drawing, painting, and sculpting from direct observation - both in the studio and plein air. I also like to experiment with different tools and techniques. Following my blog will allow you to see examples of my work in progress and read about what was happening as I made them.

Wagner Farm, Plein Air with Painting-eating cows

I started out with some graphite thumbnails to warm up at the farm. My favorite was drawing the cow, when she was briefly in position to be drawn.

 It's fun to meet people while painting plein air. This time we met a cow, who apparently had an appetite for art.

Work in progress on the farm. A photojournalist from a local paper took some photos of us while we painted. He seemed to be excited about finding us painting in Glenview.
