First week of Amazing April... 2012

April's blooming trees are more than a month early and absolutely beautiful.  I've been able to take pastels to the park and try to capture the incredible array of pinks and whites of a few of my favorite trees.

Also trying to paint with a limited palette in a limited time frame with water based oil paints.  Yellow, red, blue and white 1/2 hour to an hour.  Last weeks portraits:
Artificial light 30 min.

Natural light 1 hour

And for the "Mug and Cup" collection a clay coffee cup:
