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.

Michigan Cottage

I was commissioned to paint this cottage in Michigan. My client supplied a pair of photographs, I recommended moving some of the plants and excluding the smaller building in the background. I added the cardinal on the lawn to add life and balance the red of the stairs and chimney.
