LABRADOR RETRIEVER CONTINUING SKETCH SHEILA WEDEGIS ,2012


I have been enjoying showing the progressive steps in drawing a Lab face to my newsletter followers. Today was day 2 for the  Chocolate Lab face. (Ozzie)  After doing shading yesterday with an HB and 2B pencils I started today working with 6B and 4B graphite.  These are soft Graphite and perfect for getting the darker areas which start molding and shaping the face.

As time goes on I will post more on this particular piece and when finished will be for purchase.

Thanks for stopping by.
Warmly,
Sheila

SWEDEGIS ORIGINAL PLEIN AIR OIL PAINTING DAY 34, 2012

I am so excited about this painting. My first Plein air piece while Sammy just reclined in front of me.. The light, the ball next to him, it just captured all that I was seeing and feeling. Just wished it was larger. Always something, Haha.

It is oil on a 6" x 6" x  1.5" stretched canvas block and the scene goes all the way around onto the side.
You will find it on my Daily 365 paintings BLOG   Great daily painting price with shipping included. Only 1 like it!!

SWEDEGIS OIL ORIGINAL PAINTING DAY32, 2012

 "LIFE IN MY BACKYARD"
SOLD
I used a painting knife for this 12" x 9" canvas painting in oil.  I actually painted it yesterday late in the day, close enough I think,  but since today I finished a commission then went to my grandson's house for our weekly art afternoon I decided to put this on for today. can you say tired?

And since everything that comes on this blog, yes it's $100.00
It will take a bit to dry completely to dry and then I can ship. I will be doing more daily outdoor paintings. Hope you like this.

On the way home tonight I was longing to paint. The sky was brilliant. Roses,oranges, yellows, light purples.
