"City Market" 11" x 14"
I was recently in Charleston, SC. Here are a series of paintings I did while I was there. They are currently on display in Galerie On Broad in Charleston.
Here is a demonstration that I did at Weekend With The Masters in Monterey, CA. This is what Charles Hawthorne used to refer to as a “mudhead.” These were models, backlit against the ocean. The flesh was so dark that is resembled the color of mud. Hence, the term “Mudhead.”
I warmed up and lightened the ocean color to offset all the darks in the figure. My Model, Erin, is a silhouette against the water in the distance.
