My Zhaoming Wu style

I am trying out what I have learned at the Zhaoming Wu workshop I held earlier this June for the Federation of Canadian Artists in Calgary
This was a photo of Alysia, yes My beautiful daughter who is an amazingly patient model.  This was from a photo that we took at the workshop
Seems I need to start a new one there are so many things I have changed

My favourite colour of Glads

My favourite colour of Glads.  I bought two bunches at the co-op and couldn't keep the camera away.  Had students paint them then decided that until I get one on canvas I would continue to haul the photos to every painting session.
