The Lesson

5x7 oil on panel. I am doing these little sketches while waiting for cooler days.
I find they are very helpful in the planning stages for larger paintings.

I should have called this one Primary Colors... In fact that is exactly what I have been studying. The limited palette. Happy painting everyone.


  1. Hi Joan,

    I really like the composition, a bright sunny day at the beach. Gotta love those primary colors! I'm still having problems getting the blog list on the side bar.

  2. Very nice, and summery Joan and I love the primary colors...they work beautifully for this painting :)

  3. The last two pieces really compliment each other. I can just see them both in a lovely summer holiday cottage.
    Love the primary colors.

    Great job Joan.

  4. Hi Sue,

    Thank you, and I noticed. I emailed you some suggestion you can try. Give me a call we will work it out. Kids are home, it was a good weekend. Talk soon.


  5. Hi Janice,

    Thank you for your visit and commenting on my three blogs. I really appreciate that, I think it was a mistake doing 3 blogs. Have a wonderful day.


  6. Hi Dors,

    Thank you so much. I have some shows coming up, maybe someone with a summer cottage in Jamesport will feel the same way. I love your new home, it's spacious and lovely. All the best to you.
