Lisbon Skyline, and an homage to John Singer Sargent

The whole time I worked on this painting - which, in truth, was not a long time at all, since one of my goals was to work quickly without obsessing too much on details - I was trying to keep in mind John Singer Sargent's treatment of light, and his use of color in shadows. I'm pleased with the result.

Today's Painting

I left Portugal a year ago, and I've been thinking about this view of Lisbon's skyline ever since. There's still a fair amount of work to be done on this, but here's a look at how far I've gotten today.

Gerhardshofen revisited


Last week I completed a small study of a view of Gerhardshofen, which is a short distance outside of Nurnberg. That study was in preparation for this painting, which I finished today.

Two New Paintings


Gerhardshofen

Sheep in the Shade


There are a lot more landscapes I hope to do in the near future, if I can just find the time...
