I was trying to get a likeness of the model, her coloring, youthful
glow and kind of a buoyant personality.

This view of a distant house in Petaluma on a grey day was my first landscape in my study with Camille Prezwodek. I will try to post a lot of the paintings as I take this journey in learning from a master colorist how to paint light and form with color. At first it felt like learning Algebra or maybe Chinese, but gradually I'm learning how to see the color, beyond the local color. Its challenging, but so exciting and rewarding. Everything I never learned in art school!
