Figure painting

Studio 30 is a bright place to paint figures with other artists, an oasis of color on a gray Portland day.  Our model was dressed as a 1920's "flapper" with feathers, fur, jewels and pearls.

I discovered Clackamette Park in Oregon City on a cool, clear afternoon.  It is located where the Clackamas River flows into the Willamette River, across from West Linn.  A peaceful place surrounded by highways and city.  I painted in oil on a 12" x 16" canvas board.  My companions were quacking mallards.
