In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Orange you glad it’s photo challenge time?.”

Nothing like a spectacular  orange-hued sunrise over the Coast Mountain Range in northern California, looking across from my cabin:Daybreak2

And here are several of my sketches and a painting  I think have some interesting, though more subtle, hues of orange.  The first at left is a quick, colored sketch of Verocchio’s sculpture of David, which has  nice orange ochre hues; the sketch to the right is of a model at a recent life drawing session, and has some  interesting orange pastel shading; and the final, bottom painting has white gesso, purple, and a  vivid reddish orange design.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Express Yourself.”

Here’s your blog artist at a recent July 4 parade, attempting to express himself in watercolor painting: see first photo.  It was difficult to find the proper focus when there was such distraction from our coast highway artists collective models, posing at the front of the truck bed: see second photo.
