Korea - Kimchi Pots in Winter Garden

Acrylic on canvas board, 12 x 16

Another in our Korean series. I wanted to try to return to the 7-step method and avoid concentrating on the details too much (as I tend to do). I was interested in the reflections on the kimchi barrels, so I concentrated on that and didn't spend too long on the painting. - Chris

Korea - Oido Fish Market

acrylic on canvas, 18x24

Another Korean market picture.  I loved the chance to play with brighter colours, and using a larger canvas. - Chris

City Winter Scene

acrylic on canvas board, 12 x 16

A quick painting from a fotolia picture, at our weekly get-togethers. I don't like the smaller size - I find it too hard to paint freely. - Jill

Korea - East Coast Beach

acrylic on canvas, 24 x 30

I really enjoyed painting this one, and playing with the colours. I like the bigger canvases, too. - Jill

Boat on Shore

acrylic on canvas, 16 x 24

A quick study from a web picture - we all did the same picture, and it was fun to see how different they were. I won't bother keeping this one - Jill

AZ- Monument Valley

acrylic on canvas board, 12 x 16

Wanted to play with the colours a little. - Jill

Utah - Mexican Hat

acrylic on canvas board, 12 x 16

I wanted to try a quicker picture of this rock formation called 'Mexican Hat'. I'm still not happy with the darkness of the background, but I thought I'd just leave it for now. - Chris
