I visited the Woodlands Art Gallery this morning to check out a portrait class in oil and pastel.  I liked the work that was being done, but felt the process was too rigid for me, so decided not to take the class.  Hopefully there will be something more interesting showing up when I'm here.

Today went well again.  I will be happy when the blocking in of colors is finished so that I can get on with the real painting.  Realize that none of this is as it will be in the finished paintings.  A long way to go yet and a long time to get there.  But it sure is fun getting there.

Tomorrow I will try to get the last sky blocked in and then on to the greens and yellows.


  1. Wow Doris they are looking sooo good!!! I like the picture of you next to the painting to show the size of how big they really are. Wish I was there with you. :)

  2. Thanks Jodi. I don't think I'll be painting today. There are storm warnings for the day, so I think I will stay home and find something creative to do here. Hi to everyone at the next paint in.
