Yesterday I worked on the Copenhagen painting. The background buildings were painted in as well as some of the boats in front of them. I didn't get a chance to throw the masts in there yet. Those should make an interesting pattern against the buildings. There is still a long way to go on the piece, so in the mean time I am hoping on to new works. Paintings that I need to get done for this new gallery in LA.

My head study from yesterday turned more into an entire figure painting of Lillias. We shot this picture of her in the Uinta Mountains as she was making her way through some Aspen trees.  I know most people wouldn't go walking through tight trees with a dress and shall draped around their body. In fact much of the photo shoot she was walking around naked in the woods. So for me it was just a quick exercise in getting her nailed down in the environment, I figured cloths made better sense than without.

Today I worked on a small 10x16 for the LA gallery. This was more or less a one day session. The day before yesterday I covered over the start of an old painting I did in southern Utah, I knew the piece wouldn't amount to much so I used the canvas to start this new work. The cafe is along Prinsengracht in Amsterdam and I was really impressed by the color of the umbrellas, they set off nicely against the reds of the background buildings.
