Morning Gold, 6x8, oil on paper, $95

Here's yesterday's painting. I did this from a photo, but earlier in the year - August - I painted this little hillside scene plein air. I still like the undertone of cad red light and small brushstrokes.

Car Kit, 3 views

Here it is. I got the box at Hobby Lobby for $3.00 at 50% off, paid $4.00 for the plexiglass at a glass store where they drilled the holes for the paint cups for me. I paid about $2.00 for the paint containers. I wanted something with covers to keep the paint protected. I attached 2 screws - one to the bottom section and one to the lid and wound wire around them to keep the lid in a workable position. All together it cost me about $10.00.

30 Minutes in the Car, 5x7, oil on paper

As the title says, I painted this in the car yesterday at lunch time, in about a half hour. I used my little "car kit" as I call it. I will post some photos of it also.

The Chase, 6x8, oil on Wallis paper, $50

Well, this is another 6x8, but it was fun to do because its a study and I was after the action. I like leaving the background so its just the color of the paper and having all the action right in the middle. Studies are very enjoyable!

Around the Bend, 6x8, oil on canvas, $95

Well, I said I was tired of 6x8's, but it was the only size I had with me yesterday, so here it is. And it wasn't too bad. I painted with my friends and that always makes for an interesting time. We've been painting together for about 6 years now and its great to see how we've all improved.

Three Horses, 10x20, oil on canvas, $400

Here's the final version. I mostly worked on the landscape surrounding the horses and left them alone, except for a bit of refining on their edges and faces of the two on the right.  I added the fence posts and wire of the fence with a palette knife and a few strokes of varying warm and cool color in the grasses.

Three Horses Block-in 2, 10x20, oil on canvas

Here's the second stage of this painting. I like the horses and the light area along the bottom. I hope I can finish it without ruining what I've accomplished so far!
