Then she jogged off, leaving this in my line of vision! Five clicks of my camera and I was back in my car. And I knew exactly what I'd be painting next.

"SCHOLAR IN RESIDENCE", 11 x 14. The scholar is my friend's son, and the residence is my home. We all had a great summer together and the house is a little lonely now that they've gone home.

It's worthwhile to enlarge the painting (you can magnify it quite a bit if you click on it twice), to see this up close!
By the way, readers, feel free to post comments... I'd welcome feedback!

The challenge, - but also the fun, was adding the color. I'm fairly pleased with the results.
Pictures often don't tell enough of a story, but this particular picture, (and hopefully the painting) really captured the magical play of light and shadow.
It's all about 'broken color'. Used effectively, a knife allows you to 'float' bits of pure color over shades of gray. So, suddenly a gray rock can have blues! and pinks, and golds! And it really, really is there. It just takes some reflection to see it, tease it out, and some expertise to paint it.
