Diebenkorn & Lemieux

Days 12 & 13 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days a challenge by Leslie Saeta.

Yesterday I began a drawing class.  It was a three hour class and we drew 64 poses!  Needless to say, I was exhausted so did not get Day 12 in until today!

Day 12

"Woman with Hat & Gloves" the original was done by Diebenkorn.

Richard Diebenkorn was a American painter. His early work is associated with Abstract expressionism and the Bay Area Figurative Movement of the 1950s and 1960s. His later work were instrumental to his achievement of worldwide acclaim. Wikipedia
Day 13

I finally found my panel holder for small paintings that I purchased for a Carol Marine workshop in Santa Fe a few years ago.  It allow me to paint to the edges of the panel and it hold the panel in place beautifully.  Carol's husband invented it and now sells it HERE.

 Work in progress.....

"La Femme au chapeau blanc" - the original was done by Jean Paul Lemieux

Fun day of painting!
