Studies in style

Rather than start a large project, I have been doing a series of studies to hone some much needed skills.

This painting was done with acrylics on a roughly 14 x 18 inch Masonite board that I primed with gesso. The young girl sits in a sewing room cutting fabric that piles up by her feet. I wanted to try an indoor painting with a person and work on painting a figure in a space. Overall the painting was good practice and it gives me some things to work on in future studies.

This old wagon was painted using acrylics on piece of Masonite board 14 x 18 primed with gesso. I wanted to practice painting wood and this old discarded wagon provided an excellent reference to practice from.
