Not Just Another Pretty Face, approx 14 x 11, oil on linen, #411

Added color to this one today. I’m not sure how the dimensions will work out eventually, since the painting is actually bigger than this picture. I plan to crop it somehow.

I was so taken with this mule’s expression, I couldn’t help trying to get a portrait sketch. I think this may be the same mule as in a painting from last summer, from Aegiali.

First attempt at color on this one’s nearly done. I’m trying to “grey” the colors more, starting out with piles of warm and cool greys. I kind of miss the bright colors, but think this is a good practice for me right now.

I’m still trying to find out how to make the goats emerge from the background slowly, like they do when you see them near the road.

We’ve been to Hora several times in the past week, once to an amazing concert of Greek traditional music, and I’ve had to stop along the way to spend some time with the goats on the road. These are two of them, just moving along with the herd.

Kavos Geraniums, 16 x 20, oil on canvas, #402

In this first painting from Tim Hall’s workshop at the Kavos in Agios Prokopios, you can see we were dodging thunderheads all afternoon. That’s OK, the info on warm and cool greys and purples more than made up for a few raindrops.
