I finally had some time to sit down and work on a colored pencil project or two. Here is Miss Penny. She is a 12-week-old Miniature Schnauzer who lives across the street. Her portrait is done on black mat board. It is approximately 5x4.5. I selected the black background because I wanted to achieve a bit of a dramatic, contemporary look. Using the very dark background makes the lighter sections of hair stand out.

Here are the remaining two projects from the seminar with Ros Stallcup. The Hydrangeas are on a large wooden tray and the porch scene is on a 12x12 wrapped canvas. I am working with Ros to select dates in 2010 when she will come to Franklin, PA, to do a 3-day seminar through my studio. I'll post more information as it is available. Contact me if you are interested in this seminar.

A couple of weeks ago, Town and Country Decorative Painters sponsored a 3-day seminar with Ros Stallcup. The seminar was very well attended and the projects were wonderful. Her is the project from Friday. Each student attending the seminar brought whatever surface they wanted to paint on. My piece is painted on a wooden lid that goes to a small basket.
