I've been been hard at work in my studio, but not always having anything to show for it. I've been working on several paintings at one time right now. Which takes me longer to finish anything. But I'm easily distracted these days. So switching paintings helps.
Here I'm working on a self portrait and a golfer with the longest legs I've ever seen! I'm always embarrassed to post photos of my studio and workspace because its rarely neat. To prove my point, here is a photo I posted on Facebook of my studio yesterday. Maybe someday I'll have enough space to actually get organized.
I have all these great reference photos of kids playing soccer. And I'm in love with the subject. So now I'm trying to translate that into paintings and still capture the light and movement which is what I originally loved.
So this painting captures a great action moment, and I think I've gotten close to what I'm trying to achieve. I'll be working on the values a bit more and adding a few other figures to a larger piece.
Summer soccer games! I love the colors and action. This painting doesn't show a lot of action, but I have more coming! Here, I think she is getting ready to make a move! I might need to do some a bit larger.
On a side note, I'm having a hard time taking photos of these last few paintings. I can't tell you how many I took before I settled on this being the closest. I'll keep trying.
