1354 Gone Rowing 4 - oil painting,framed by Diana Marshall
The fourth and last of my gone rowing series. I painted these four on boards primed with black gesso so painting black shoes on a black ground was not as easy as it sounds, but if we don't challenge ourselves then we stay in a rut.
I like painting in series and have been following a few, Carol Nelson did a series of 100 portraits in the Fauvist style and at the moment Karin Jurick is in the middle of her series of 100 4 x 4inch portraits. I'm not sure I could manage 100 that requires a lot of commitment and ref photos, so I will stick with mini-series for the moment, maybe a challenge for the future.
