Painting the Painter

"Suzanne"
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....

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