The Little Ladies

One of my goals for 2016 is to work in series.  Not only is it more efficient, but it is also fun to have collections of like themed pieces.  This series of four canvases I affectionately refer to as “The Little Ladies”.  They are each a diminutive 4 x 12 inch canvas.  Here are shots of them from the beginning.

the sketch was done right on the canvas…..


Then I shaded in the faces, I guess so we could get started making friends…


From there it was a process of adding paint, then adding paper, then adding more paint… and then all over again!



So, now let me introduce… the Fishmonger’s Wife,
