As you can see the figure painting obsession continues...This was cool to do because of the graffiti.. I used a watercolor pencil and crayon to "write" in the letters behind the bearded guy. I even signed my name on the lower right side of the wall in a tagging style...well maybe sort of, but a graffiti artist I'm not (12"x12")

This was an experiment in taking away pigment...the white shirt of the person under the umbrellas and the highlights of the items around the figures was all pigment applied and then later lifted with a damp brush. You can also see some of that in the figures by the water.

The portrait painting has really grabbed me...I hope you can endure some more from me...This was done from a photograph that Jeannie McGuire provided..it's her daughter, but I think it ended up looking more like Keira Knightley...love the movie she's in: "Love Actually".

Here is another from the workshop...more than unfinished, but a good start...now that I know that you can just keep adding color, opaque, white, scrub away etc..etc.. I can just keep working and working and working, but I think the paper might get a bit tired...
