  2. Dear Cathyann,
    Thank you for the kind words. I have been experimenting with acrylics, trying to achieve the look of oil.

    Have a great day,

  7. Wow! Radiant radishes, Joan! Hitting the studio at such an early hour is really paying off. Great brushwork; beautiful color harmonies; terrific value range. Love it, and the studies.

  8. Liz, thank you, your comments are appreciated.
    I looked at your earlier blogs. The feature studies, what a great idea. Rather than concerning myself with a complete portrait, studying values and features can really help.

    Have a great weekend
    Joan
