Last Thursday I painted at Dickey Ridge.  Often when I paint on location I paint at least one painting and sometimes start a second.  This particular day I did that plus started a third.  Many painters paint multiple canvas of the same subject.  Think Monet’s Haystacks and his Cathedrals.

Here are the three paintings I completed from that plein-air outing.

 This is a painting that I have done four times in the past few weeks.  It is a good painting for art lessons.  It works for young painters as well as more experienced ones.

You can see here that Rachel painted it recently.   And so did Jacob. 

He’s my youngest student.  He did a great job with his painting too.

Quick Editor’s Note: Larry the Lobster is now on display at the Blue Ridge Arts Council at 305 E. Main Street until October.  Stop in to see him.   

Meet Larry the Lobster.  I ate him.  Well, I ate him several months ago on my trip to Newport.  He was delicious.  Now he’s just a memory, a memory in paint.  Larry the Lobster, oil on canvas, 9″x12″, available by contacting kwalker@doubledogdesigns.com .

This is Larry before I devoured him.  I have to say, he was VERY good!  Larry I am grateful for your sacrifice.

This is Rachel.  Her grandparents live in Front Royal and when she visits she often takes an art lesson with me.  Yesterday we painted together and she worked in oil for the first time.  What a terrific job Rachel.  Can’t wait until we paint together again!
