Oil Painters of America Western Regional painting demo-Napa Valley





This past weekend Erik and I drove up to Napa Valley for a Western Regional show for Oil Painter's of America. I had been asked to do a quick painting demonstration inside the host gallery. The show was hosted by Lee Youngman Galleries. I was very fortunate to have a model who did a very good job of holding steady. I brought my portable plein air set up from Sienna Plein Air.

A quick linear lay in on an oil primed linen board to start:

Next were some massed in colors and values:


Trying to quickly cover everything in a short amount of time is a real challenge-

I did not venture into the clothing of the model-(stripes take time!) and finished the vignette with the necklace shape.

Thank you to Christine for modelling for me:
