November '09 update

Gray Pigeon o/c 24in X 20in

Red Charity o/c 24in X 20in

Mila in Fur o/c 16in X 20in

Figurative Landscape o/c 16in X 20in

Jaime o/c 16in X 20in

Yellow Roses o/c 14in X 11in

I updated the pictures today. I have been having trouble getting the value of the photos correct lately. They will look good on my monitor but when I look at them on another monitor they will be to dark or to light. This batch should look as close to the paintings as I can get and I checked the images on 3 different monitors just to make sure.

Ned Mueller Workshop

Here are some shots and paintings from Ned Mueller's workshop in Camano Island last weekend. It is the first time that I have taken a workshop and it was very fun, 3 days of all day painting, what could be better. The first couple of shots are Ned getting ready for his demo.

These are from Friday where Ned asked us to spend no more than an hour or so just focusing on shapes and color.

Tide Streams o/c 9in X 12in

Boom Poles o/c 9in X 12in

Backlit Bush o/c 9in X 12in

On Saturday I spend about 2.5 hours on the boat painting and about an hour on the hillside one

High and Dry o/c 9in X 12in

Hillside o/c 11in X 14in

Sunday presented a new challenge. While Friday and Saturday were clear and sunny the weather moved in on Sunday. The first painting was the first time that I have actually painted with oil's in the rain. It started out as a light drizzle but turned into a decent down pour. I was actually mixing colors with raindrops all over my pallet and canvas. It is true what they say oil and water do not mix and an hour or so after I was finished and had the painting inside you would never have known that it was covered in rain drops. For the last one I set up my umbrella against the back door of my van and it kept everything dry

Here is a little Plein Aire I did this last Monday on my birthday. I don't know if there is any better birthday present than being able to paint on such a beautiful day.

Another Book

I put together another book. This book is 8.5in X 11in and with 76 pages of art. There are 53 full page paintings and 12 Drawings.

I am putting together my own preview here as the preview on the Blub site displays the book cover with very bad Moire (those diagonal bars that run across the cover). Don't worry they do not appear in the printing I received my copy today.

If you are interested you can purchase the book here Aaron Coberly -2008
