This is not a subject that I would normally choose but what a painting workout it turned out to be. Only Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White so the whole painting relies on values and temperature changes obtained with those three colors.

This painting shows Mack standing on the bridge to the old Tulsa Zoo entrance in Mohawk Park. We had been at the Zoo all day and were leaving about 5:30 pm and what struck me about the scene was the evening sky rolling in and the warm glow it cast on such a cold grey day. I tried to get the feel of it.

Here are my 10 Minute Eggs, this is a 6x8 inch oil on canvas. I divided the canvas into 6 sections and painted the same egg in each section setting a timer for each one for 10 minutes. Total time for the whole painting 60 minutes. I did change the color of the cloth under the egg, it's position and the lighting. This was done based on the Daily Painting Weekly Challenge Group. I am going to include a link in my areas of interest.

I have been doing a series of Notans and Value Study paintings for my work at Virtual Art Academy. The Notans are quick one to three inch studies done with a brush pen and the Value paintings are mostly 6 x 8 inch oils on canvas paper, except for the last one which is 6 inch square. I think I am learning alot by doing these and may have a couple from this selection that grow up to become paintings at some point.
