My first love

I've been spending a lot of time drawing which is something I don't usually do.  Drawing is really the foundation of good painting and I'm finding that taking the time to draw is really helping me loosen up when I paint.  I did the cowboy yesterday and the flower today.  I am limiting myself to one or two brushes rather than my usual dozen.

Having fun with sketching

 I've  called this blog Painting Almost Every Day because that is what I try to do but lately rather than painting I've been having fun with sketching especially sketching faces.  Since I have no formal art education under my belt with the exception of a painting workshop here or there, I've decided to get some instruction in drawing and painting the face and figure.  These are a couple that I drew of two different models.  The instructor, Paul Davis, met each of us at the level we were at and stretched us so we left the workshop a better artist than when we entered.
