  • Portraiture Meets Figure Painting

    Portraiture Meets Figure Painting Alain Picard is well-known for his portraits, but the care and artistry he brings to his portraiture is also evident in his figure work. Even a subtle gesture of a woman seated on some stone steps comes to life with the way he paints his figures, using painterly strokes...

  • Will You Please Put Some Clothes On?

    Portrait of Queen Elizabeth I by Nicholas Hilliard (attributed), 1585. I can only imagine the excitement and thrill of sitting for any one of the great portrait painters in history such as Bronzino, Velazquez, and Sargent. But then my mind goes directly to the most pressing question, what to wear?! Portrait...

  • Lucian Freud Had Great Skin

    I started off seeing skin tones in a closed off way, not really pushing to find the dimension and depth right in front of me. I almost felt I was still pulling a Crayon out of the box to color a figure's form from head to toe like I did in childhood. But there are artists who have shown me the rainbow...

  • I'm Scared--What If I Freeze Up When I Paint This Way?

    Faded Glory by Rose Frantzen, 36 x 48, oil painting. If there were daredevils of art, I certainly would not be one of them. I'm always hesitating and rethinking what I'm doing. (In my day-to-day life I'm not such a scaredy cat—I swear.) But if I wanted to get lessons in how to be one...

  • A Few Favorite Resources from My Bookshelves

    Sarah Simblet (her pen drawing, Isis 38 , above) taught me a lot about how intertwined the semblance of motion and mark-making are in really good drawings. Maybe it is part of having an arts career or maybe it is just me, but I love books and magazines and videos about art and artists about as much as...

  • "Flower Lady"

    We saw these flower ladies, putting flowers together, at the market in Seattle. We were there for a national art educators conference. It is painted on 300 lb Arches rough. I tried to keep it loose and somewhat painterly so I wouldn't over do it. Matted it fits a 33 x 26 inch frame. I cropped it...

  • "First Day of School"

    Pavina sent me a photo of her nephew on his first day of school. Have pity on his kindergarden teacher. The image is about 17 x 17 inches. I'm looking for a 22 x 22 inch frame. It's done in transparent watercolor on Arches 140 lb rough which I stretched over a piece of gator board. Of course...
