R Is For Ryker & Value Study #7

R Is For Ryker
8 x 8 oil on panel

This is my grandson who will turn 2 in a month. He is learning his letters already. 'R' is a hard one for him to say. This is really a value study also.

Value Study #7.  Simple still life. So much fun to do.


  1. You have been busy! I love Ryker the best! The subject matter really captured my heart...and so well done. Your value studies are wonderful and a great exercise that I still have yet to accomplish! You inspire me!

  2. I love your value studies. I can see how it would help with composition. Learning from you!

  3. Your work really shows the benefit of doing value studies. You inspire us to get out those PKR dvds! Really nice work, Cathy. Ryker is so cute!

  4. Such a beautiful job on your grandson. So smart to be doing the value studies too. Easy for us to get off track if we don't keep certain things in mind. And easy to do if we have TOO many things in mind. Oh well.

  5. Wonderful painting of your grandson and a lot more special than a photo. Lovely.
    Happy Painting.
