Four Friends

This was a quick oil study. I enjoyed the figures in this picture and although I am not a landscape painter, I enjoyed the limited landscape.

I am feeling a bit stale and have decided to try some pictures that are different for me. The first is some sepia portraits, and some with a limited palette. I feel a need to study values and keep it simple. Maybe some different subject matter will also help keep it fresh. Repetition is a good thing, but I think a change can be invigorating. Any suggestions?


  1. WONDERFUL painting, Janet! I love the way you handled the figures. Well done!

  2. Great figures Janet...I like how the entire scene directs you to that tiny ball!!

  3. I love this Janet. The composite of the four men concentrating on the next shot really draws the viewer in!
