13 of 30 - Dogs and Cars - Wanderlust

Oil on Linen on board
This is more of a camper than a car, but I've been wanting to paint it for a while!  It sort of fits with my general theme of dramatic light...and hopefully no one has noticed I took a few days off from the challenge;)   This camper belongs to a gentleman who stopped by the workshop I took with Colin Page last year around this time on beautiful Balboa Island.   He enjoyed seeing the artists at work, and if I remember correctly he was selling postcards and such on his journey up and down the coast.  He sure has a unique and delightfully decorated mode of transportation!

On another note, I will be teaching a Workshop this April 16th and 17th in Thousand Oaks, focusing on Composition and Confident Brush Strokes.
We will be working on simplifying what we see through several value exercises and, making our brush strokes count!

  1. What a cool painting and camper.

  2. This is a very fun and adventurous car. I love the light in the picture as well.


Thank you! Comments are much appreciated and it means a lot to me that you took the time.
