Well as I have finished the latest gnome I thought I would have a go at painting again. Claudia's boys called to me as soon as I saw the reference so I cleaned up the clay and got to work.

First the charcoal drawing. 12" x 24" canvas.

 

This is as far as I got today. I rubbed off the flesh as it was just the wrong colour.

Jen C & C's always welcome

Jen, your boys are really shaping up. I also like all the draping of their shirts, especially the orange shirt. They are such a nice group of boys.

I just wonder if anyone else is having problems with the site? I am not receiving automatic responses when something is posted..

Thank you Charlie and Bonnie. This has been a fun painting as it is mostly about light and shadow patterns. 

Bonnie I have not had problems but Karen has been unable to post the gallery. If anyone else has problems please report them to Courtney Jordan. The site does get these glitches every so often.

Jen C & C's always welcome

Jen thank you for putting this Months challenge together on short notice.  

Charlie your watercolor is great.  Looks like a place I'd want to go.

Jen great work on the soccer boys.  Can't wait to see more.

I finally won the battle with the computer.  The April gallery is up.  Bonnie I think my posting problem was the browser.  I was using Google chrome.  I finally switched to explorer and was able to post.

 

Karen

C&Cs always welcome
