Dottie finish, Riverwalk progress and 11 year old's portrait from sitting.

8"x10" oil on canvas panel
I forgot my camera at home today so had to make do with my phone's camera. At the end of the day I got to paint this girl, Paola, whose 11th birthday is today. I'll try to get a better photo tomorrow.

I finished Dottie today. I'm not sure this was the final version, but probably close enough.

In between Dottie and Paola, I worked a bit on this painting of the San Antonio Riverwalk. It had the effect of sherbet between dinner courses.

Now I'll go visiting blogs to see what my friends painted today! I love this time of day.

What is with this forgetting the camera? That is my trick!

I was just reading my friend, Leslie's, blog talking about being a kid and I said it made me wistful. Paola fits that wistful kid moment. Nice portrait.

Dottie shaped up nicely, too, and I love the bright colors on the Riverwalk.

These all look wonderful, in their various stages. I love the Riverwalk ones you have done. So you worked on three paintings yesterday?.. I have finally figured out that you paint with both hands!

Way to go.

Classic (and classy) portraits of two young ladies! Thank you for showing us the stages for Dottie, it's always fun to be able to see that...
