Artist Portraits Part IV

Alright, after much fussing with final prompt work, I managed to get around to Leyendecker. Here he is.
As I said, I greatly enjoyed working with oils again, as it has been months since my last dabbling. I hope to learn more in the future.

Plein Air Painting With James Perry Wilson

I was recently introduced to the work of James Perry Wilson by my colleague Daryl Funck, and was rather intrigued by his articulate wealth of natural understanding; his work actually helped a rather immediate concern in one of my own projects. Being a life-time enthusiast of the outdoors with some training, I was happy to know of Wilson's painting.

Stage III, Capturing the West

After tackling many other prompts, I've managed to get to finished this. I think "finish" might still mean a tiny bit of fiddling, but that is as it should be with this sort of thing.
I am looking forward to the large scale watercolor, though! I plan to get to that stage over the break.
