I traveled to Athens, Ohio with a friend in early April for an OPAS paintout. Everyone else was drawn tot he river to paint cherry trees in bloom but we decided it was much too gray a day. What was needed? Some architecture! This is downtown Athens near the courthouse.
Last month I created eight paintings from photos I took at Sauder Village when I was there in Sept. 2009. They are all 8" x 10" and I am hoping to sell prints in the General Store at the Village. Need to approach Juanita yet.
Here is my take on Henry Drinker (head study only). Beaux painting of Drinker is a masterpiece with extravagant brushwork and awesoem color. The lighting on his head is strange and it was hard to make sens eof but I did my best.
