Here’s a few workshops I’ll be teaching in the Boston area over the summer.
• June 29 and 30 - Traditional Materials Workshop
I have a couple spots left in a class on Artist Materials at the Academy of Realist Art in Boston. Paint Grinding, making Canvas and Panels, mediums will all be covered. Class will [...]
Looks like Spring is here, seasons are changing. I have a couple winter views that I’m still tinkering with, but they’ll have to be finished in the studio- we won’t be seeing any more snow this year (though this is New England- I probably shouldn’t say that).
I haven’t done much still life work over the past few years, though before starting to paint outdoors I used to paint a good deal of still life. As I’m starting to set up a large still life for a commission, I’ve been looking back on some of my earlier work, and thought it would [...]
Here’s a last sketch from Italy, accidentally omitted from the last post. This is from the private gardens across the street from my old studio, Il Giardino della Gherardesca.

Spending some time in sketch groups in america has been interesting- I hadn’t done 2 minute [...]
Here’s a few old portrait drawings. It’s been nice coming across old things as I finally unpack some boxes.
Last year I started experimenting with metal point a bit. I took to using a silver point most, I really like the delicacy of line you can achieve with it as you layer and build up tone.
