This painting was a gift in a give-away on my facebook page. Fun!
This painting is an 8" x 10" oil on linen panel. The photo reference came from a wonderful photographer, Rodney Campbell. You can find many of his photos on MorgueFile, Flickr and facebook.

The class consisted of nine wonderful artists, it was offered by Binders Art Supply and took place Friday - Sunday. Mike is a wonderful, inspiring instructor. and his presentation on values and color mixing was one of the best I have ever heard. His teaching style is full of humor, personable and loaded with information. At the end of every painting sesssion Mike offers a critique of every student's work. These critiques provided a great opportunity for learning along with suggestions to assist each of us with improving our paintings. Because Mike is a spokesperson for Jerry's ArtArama, you can find several instructional videos by him on youtube. One is found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWa3pTDV9ug The videos are very short, informative and easy to follow. Check them out and his wonderful work at : http://mikerooneystudios.blogspot.com/ I cannot recommend his class more highly!
