Six Practice Pieces

these are little 5x7 paintings done for students showing ways to say alot with a little paint.  They're done on a canvas pad with the idea that painting can be like learning to play the piano - not every one will be like playing a concert.  Experimenting puts new life to the paint!

And here are some of the steps in painting them:
