Sherwin Drawing the Model, 10" x 8", Oil on Linen, 2013. This oil on linen, alla prima painting features the son of an artist in my Thursday painting group at The Woodlands’ Art League in The Woodlands, Texas. My friend Sherwin is featured in the foreground. Sherwin comes to nearly every painting and drawing group offered through the art league. Sherwin is in his 80’s and has more spunk than many men half his age. I like to include quick study paintings like this one in my portfolio for a number of reasons. The main reason is that I love the spontaneous quality of the brushwork.
