Yellow Smock

"Yellow Smock", 9" x 7", Oil on Museum Board
This was another one of the women coming home from the fields in the village near Dali, Yunnan Province, in Western China. The challenge of this painting was to capture the face in shadow. Following is the painting I did on the spot, facing the other way.
"Long Shadows", 8" x 10", Oil on Canvas, 2009


  1. Both are wonderful. Just love the greys in the landscape.

  2. Two wonderful paintings! The portrait is beautifully done with her head bowed to cast a shadow under her hat. And, as Karen said just wonderful greys in the landscape.

  3. These are just great. I really enjoy your portraits and landscapes (Yeah for Zangle Cove!). And thanks for the Plein Air Artists tip (on the sidebar). I just joined, and it looks like a great group.
