Buddy Black, Los Alamitos Wiener Nationals 2012

Good job at the Wiener Nationals 'Little Man' !

'Goldfish' by Chloe

 This is one of my favorite pieces just completed by a very enthusiastic student.  Chloe loves painting in oils and is getting better at learning how to mix and blend her own oil colors.  This particular painting is after a Mattisse painting called, 'The Goldfish''

 Pretty good for an aspiring 6 year old artist!

'Roses in Red'

 Fia is getting a good start on her 'Roses in Red' painting. 

 We started with a live still life.  Fia laid in her drawing with charcoal on a canvas board.  The next week since the roses faded she worked from a photo to finish her charcoal drawing.  This week she will pick her color palette and begin painting the background, moving into the roses.

Bud thinks it looks great!
