Last night there were two students at my Acrylic Painting Workshop at the Westfield Creative Arts. Phyllis finished her tropical beach scene and a new student Kathleen a watercolorist worked on a Maine ocean sunset. My painted version and the original photo is below. Kathleen as a watercolor artist is used to using a lot of water with watercolor painting. In acrylic painting you use less water and more paint. She worked fast and did a great job with her painting, finishing it in the two hours. Sorry, I don't have a photo of hers!
Fresh off the easel this weekend! "Honey Pot Road Autumn", oil on canvas panel, 16" x 20", I painted this from my own photos in my studio in the same style as my plein air painting but on a larger size canvas. I will paint more paintings in this larger format.

I have 14 paintings on display and for sale at Mama Cakes on Elm Street in downtown Westfield, MA. Included are two acrylic paintings, one watercolor and the rest oil paintings. Also, I have a large rack of loose matted original watercolor paintings. They will be there for the rest of the month and three weeks into February. Stop by to check them out and have a coffee and delicious cupcake!
