The Dallas Arboretum

I have been planning to paint this statue for a while at the Dallas Arboretum.  Finally got around to it. Oil on Linen Panel, size 6″x8″.


I have started doing value sketches, before starting a painting. I highly recommend it, to get a feel for color notes.  They don’t have to be perfect, just quick and dirty to get a feel for what you are going to do.  Here is one for the above painting.
