The Sailor, 6×6 Oil on Panel – Available for purchase here.

One of my other obsessions is fountain pens.  This is a Sailor 1911 Extra Fine with a beautiful gold nib and it writes like a dream.  Had to paint it, of course.

You can find the digital version of this study a few posts back.  I may do yet another – this stunning study by Sargent uses a very limited palette, almost a Zorn palette, and yet it conveys so much.  His is unfinished, and so is mine.  6×6 Oil on panel.

I have finished the beginning of this series called “Pur” or sheer in French.  I want to capture the transparency of the fabric which drapes around the model in a compositional way, and I am doing a series of five of these.  Here it is on my website.  I’ll start on the next one tonight!  A few more of my pieces are now available on e-bay at an incredibly affordable prices here, where I just got a wonderful feedback on a sold piece:
