I started this and nearly finished it "en Plein Air" on location at Sullivan's Island station 30. I snapped a bunch of reference photos and put final touches on it when I returned to the studio.
This particular day was hot and sticky and although it was sunny, you could see by the dramatic cloud formations off shore that there was a storm in our near future.
These kind of cloudy days are so fun to capture on canvas!
This was a commission for a woman whose younger brunette looks a lot like my own son. . . I really enjoy painting these sweet "moments" in time: capturing little ones playing at the beach. So fun!

Painted En Plein Air on location at Longitude Lane which dead-ends into Meeting Street from East Bay Street near "Rainbow Row." This is a sweet, little private drive that is home to some of the most beautiful garages and backyard gates that connect to some of the most beautiful homes in historic Downtown Charleston, SC.

This is the portrait painting I demonstrated for the Portrait Workshop over the weekend. Hopefully it shows the values and the temperature of color and all their respected shapes well.

I was so honored to have had this privilege of instructing these members of the Trenholm Artist Guild who so graciously invited me to share my knowledge of painting the portrait.
We had such a great time together!
Thanks to Glenda Keyes, Karen Jambrose, Renea, David, Jim, Pete, Noel and Regina!! You blessed my socks off!
