Thank you for visiting my blog. I love to paint outdoors. In recent months I have joined a portrait painting group that meets weekly. I have fallen in love with portraits. So I will be blogging not only about plein air adventures and events, but also my new obsession with portraits.

Jan. 28: Daniel #3
The sketch, in oil with a brush.
Sometimes the painting just seems easy. This one was 'easy'. I am trying the loose and unfinished look. Avoiding every single fiber of canvas covered, small brush to get every beard hair, ADD approach. What a relief. (I did soften the hard lip lines and nose edges after I took this photo.) 9 x 12 oil on canvas paper. Daniel #3
