This is from one of my desert photographs. I did a lot of work on the photo before I started to paint. It really wasn't very good. In Photo shop I made the background much lighter, less contrast and bluer. I did the same to the middle ground but less so. The foreground I more or less left alone.
I think it turned out pretty good.
This is a portrait of my friend Jon
I painted this Weds. night. I was a little liberal with the medium when I began. It started to run as you can see on the right side. I thought it was cool looking, so I left it.

We"ll start with the Weds. night figure since I think it is my best painting of the week. Not much to say, I just like the way it turned out.
I had every intention of painting outside today, but got spooked by a windy forcast, so I stayed home and started this painting. These are my friends Jon and Neil on one of our trips to the Needles in Utah.
I have been thinking of the desert a lot lately, so I have been painting from photos taken while on outings there. I am really trying to get the proper colors and values so that they look like they were painted pleinair.
