Since my plein air group has stopped going out for the winter, I was able to go back and join the SBAA sketch group last Tuesday. Our model was Seamus. I did one painting that I worked on for about 1 1/2 hrs.

Then I did a quick sketch of him that took about 15 minutes.


  1. Your prolific sketching Joan pays off as you are able to easily tackle such a wide variety of subjects -Kudos to you

  2. Love the way you painted his shirt. The rest is great too, but I can
    sense the volume of his torso under the paint. Great!

  3. Thanks Lorraine. Doing portraits helps me focus more when I am out doing landscapes.

    Thanks so much, Julie!

  4. Wow! Joan! Love your portrait of Seamus! Also love the lighthouse! Love everything you post! Happy December! Bring on the snow! ( Your sketches would make an awesome book!) Bravo Joan!
