Cowgirl Quick Draw

Cowgirl Quick Draw__14 x 11 oil, sold at auction, Phippen Museum Western Art Show 2010
Sunday afternoon was the second Quick Draw at this recent show. We had an hour to paint and frame a painting. I chose an image to work from which I painted last summer as a demo in a workshop. I used the same reference and since I worked so fast I chose to not try for a "likeness", so it doesn't look like the model...this would be a "generic cowgirl"...(but it looks familiar, eh, Marla??) sold for a good price to a very happy patron!
On June 14 - 16 I will teach a "serious" workshop in Fredericksburg, TX. The focus is on DRAWING and Drawing to paint, and working quickly to get the "Impression". For three days we will capture "starts" on smaller canvases, work with color during the cool parts of the day and work in the studio on drawing lessons in the heat of the day. I promise a great improvement in your drawing direction...this will be a great "workout" for three days. You have the option to stay for a 4th day to finish a few of your starts. Or, you can stay and do new starts There will be lots of critique and a few demos so you can see how it's done.
Contact Fredericksburg Artists School if you want to come...It will be a small class, and you can sign up at the last minute if there is room. Let me know if you sign up!
