Daily Painting 1402 Coconut Palms Pondside Plein air Alla Prima

I went to Immokolee today for the Art Mundo paintout. Immokolee  is a historic home here in Fort Pierce.  Its a lovely home and yard, a great place to paint.  I had a good time, there is lots of nice things to paint there.
 This is a pretty pond they have, its surrounded by giant ferns and these plants with small bright red flowers whose name escapes me.  The butterflies love them and I saw a lot of giant swallowtails and zebra butterflies.
Art Mundo provided nice cold soft drinks and water and the owners of Immokolee gave us some donuts, I couldn't ask for anything more.

The painting is 5 x 7, oil on masonite.

Daily Painting 1401 Double portrait work in progress

I have been working on this for a few days now its a double portrait that the family wanted done, the man has passed away.  The photo I am working from is at the bottom.  The painting is 12 x 16 inches oil on masonite.  I didn't like the composition so I cropped it.  Its still not finished, the lady is just sketched in and I need to do lots of detail work on her.  Her hair is barely started.  Her eyes and mouth are just started. I like how his eyes are coming out, they are looking to the side on the photo and they are looking to the front now.   Not for sale

Daily Painting 1400 Green House on Ave. D. Plein Air Alla Prima

I did this at the Souvenirs of Downtown Fort Pierce paintout so its not available right now.  It was fun to paint, I was sitting across the street with a friend of mine in a yard with no trespassing signs on it.   It looked like it was going to pour down rain too.  So we painted fast, figuring we would either get run off or rained on.  The rain blew over, one drop only landed on me and nobody made us leave.

Its 8 x 10,inches  oil on masonite.

Daily Painting 1398 Two Salmon Hibiscus miniature oil painting

I always liked these, I still have plants from cuttings of the original salmon hibiscus that I grew up with.   I tried twice to get the right colors from my painting onto the computer and had no luck.  Its pretty close, I think they look much prettier in real life, the oranges are softer and lighter in the painting.  The center of the right hibiscus is darker and so are the stamen ends.  I feel very frustrated, LOL!

Its a miniature painting, 4 x 6 inches, oil on masonite.

Daily Painting 1397 Tabebuia Tree at the Backus House

This is unavailable at the moment, its one of the paintings I did at the Backus House Souvenirs of Downtown paintout.  I had a wonderful time, it was wonderful visiting with everyone.  We got treated beautifully, got three meals every day!  The first dinner was just for the artists, that was really nice.  Then there were two nice receptions, during the big one there was a big rain storm so there weren't as many people coming out, mainly artists and their friends and families.

The painting is 8 x 10, oil on masonite.  There is a yellow tabebuia tree next to the Backus house and in the back is the melon colored cottage.

I did six other paintings over the three days,  I was pretty happy with most of them.
