Painting the Painter

6"x6" oil on canvas panel

On Sunday, my friend Suzanne and I were painting together, each painting a scene that was next to where the other person was standing. Mine wasn't going too well, and I looked up and there was Suzanne, intent on her work. I have been enjoying the wonderful posts from Kathryn Townsend about the class she took with Peggi Kroll-Roberts. I have known about this workshop for some time, and look forward to taking it myself. I thoroughly enjoyed taking it vicariously through Kathryn's posts*, which were what sent my mind immediately to "How about I paint Suzanne?". This was the result.

* The link goes to one post, but take a look at those before and after for Kathryn's tour of Peggi's workshop. And my painting of Suzanne is not an attempt to do one of Peggi's exercises, but I will try that soon.


  1. She looks like an Edwardian woman to me. Virginia Woolf just in the next room....

  2. Very bold Bobbi, good for you for tackling this subject, and you did a great job with it!

  3. I like this little painting...I really can't believe the size! A "lot" of information in a very small space (grin).
