Figure Studies

Grace & Lindsey
14"x11" Oil

I am very blessed to have four beautiful and healthy grandchildren.  In the past few weeks I have attempted the difficult task (for me) of trying to capture them in paint!  It has been a great learning process by helping me to see the subtle value shifts.

12"x9" Oil

rough sketch

Here are three studies featuring my three younger grandchildren who are now 11, 8 and 4.  These are from photos taken a couple years ago.  My oldest grandchild, Cameron, has not yet been captured.  I am looking for the perfect pose.  It is hard to catch him sitting still because he plays so many sports!    I will keep looking and he will be my next target!
