More Zoom Paintings

These two little 8x10 acrylic paintings were the paintings I held back on the previous post but were done on a Zoom meeting.
I worked on them today, simplifying some of the busy areas and I am feeling much better about them. The majority of the painting was done during the session.

Painting via Zoom

These are all 8x10 acrylic paintings done on canvas boards
and were all done while on the last 3 Zoom meetings with members of the Port Moody Art Association.
Photos were offered up (3 were mine) to use and our sessions only last approx. 1 1/2 hours.
It's interesting to paint while chatting with members and a lot like plein air painting. You have to get the information down quickly, try not to get distracted and create something of interest - all in a short time period. I managed to do 5 paintings in total but two I feel were not as successful and require a little more attention - if I can fix them, I'll post them!

Dog portraits

These are new pet portraits done in acrylics on canvas paper
They are small....4.25"x5.75"
A couple I'll be keeping as they are/were my dogs
(Sophie current and Mark from my past)
Interesting dilemma when painting a series for an up coming show.
I will simply have to paint more dog portraits and try not to let them tug at my heart strings.
