This is for Virtual Paintout September 2016 Lancaster County PA challenge. It's oil on 8x10 canvas panel.
At Dutch Wonderland there were many interesting people scenes. I chose this little girl because because of the good lighting, and the face is not blurred out. (ref) I tried to use cool light with warm shadows.

This is for Virtual Paintout August 2016, Norway challenge. It's oil on 8x10 canvas board.
After taking a few months off preparing for the Cliburn, I finally got back to picking up my paint brushes again. Norway has many wonderful scenes, and I always like water reflections, so this view was an easy choice for me. (ref) First I painted the canvas panel reddish brown. Snow is combination of yellow white for light and purplish and bluish grey for shadow. Sky reflection is combination of warm to cold blue and greys.
