    Soft Morning Nude

    Later, the world will have hard edges and colors that scream for attention.

    But not now.

    Two Studies of a Torso

    This is just a practice piece in digital watercolor. Imagine how great she’ll look when I get a bit more practice.

    Danny Thinks It Over

    Here’s the first gallery appearance of Danny, whose blog you will find here.

    I had a few comments to make, but I don’t want to interrupt the Deep Thinking.

    Bon Appetit

    Let’s wash our hands in case we get invited to the table.

    The Approach To the Lair Of Quetzalcoatl

    It would probably be wise to offer a bit of explanation here.

    But it would be more fun not to.

    Reclining Nude In Red, Blue and Yellow

    Nothing is more difficult, or more satisfying, than simplicity.

    The model is Bron, making her third appearance here.

    Vision of the Hopi Shaman

    Here’s another abstract expressionist piece with a palette of (mostly) primary colors. At an early state in its development, it contained design motifs suggestive of Hopi decorative art. These are mostly gone, but the title remains.

    Daybreak

    Here again is Gabby, this time in an impressionistic style that substitutes bold strokes for thousands of multicolored digital “threads.”

    Gabby, Gold and Mauve

    Here is Gabby again, this time in a new hairstyle and a new painting style. This is a painterly image that I’ve left unfinished to emphasize the bold, thick strokes. Of course they aren’t really thick at all: This is a digital image, and the impasto effect is an illusion.

    Jeune Fille en Jaune

    When someone directed me to this lovely model and begged me to paint her, I understood his enthusiasm. There is something about her face—the dreamy eyes, full lips and rosy cheeks—that calls to mind the feminine ideal of the middle 19th Century. We have seen this face (or faces like it) in many Victorian paintings. 

    The subversive pre-Raphaelites would have endorsed the faux Classical toga and the long, untamed red hair—a sign of sexual abandon, as is the direct gaze into the viewer’s eyes. By the way, is she dressing or undressing?

    A Colombian Afternoon

    Long-time followers will not be surprised to learn that the red-haired woman is Marci, the beautiful Colombian model who appears in my gallery at least three dozen times in a variety of outfits, hats and personae.

    Short-time followers need to learn the name, as you’ll be seeing it a lot.

    Sarah On Blue #2

    This is my second collaboration with Sarah Voss.

    The subject matter, composition and tone of quiet melancholy were inspired by Edward Hopper, though the (mostly blue) color scheme steers toward expressionism.

    The Indigo Tee

    Here again is Molly in—or partly in—an indigo tee shirt.

    I was painting something altogether different when Molly posted several new pieces, and as usual I scrapped my plans to paint her once again.

    Wouldn’t you?
