SPANISH CHICKEN / Daily Painting #1093

Watercolor / 6 x 8 inches

Here's another in the popular new series, Confections. ( Well, not exactly. I decided to forego the pen and ink line in favor of drawing directly the brush.) I'm having a great time with these, and apparently so are many of you.

Be the first person in with a $100 bid, because the first hundred takes it!

So don't wait! Send your bid in an email to:

farnsworthgallery@newmex.com, or call Thea at 505 982-4561.

It snowed last evening!

Time to kick my packing into high gear and head south. 'Cause when the snow starts to fly, so do I! Does that make me a snowbird? Well, whatever it takes to get me to warmer climes.

Do you want to see what I'm taking? Stay tuned. All my new gear came in today, so I'll show you how I'm getting it ready to go, and how and what I'm packing. Then, when I know where I'm headed to first, I'll let you in on that, too.

Buckle up, my friends, the adventures are about to begin.

Please remember that if you would like to:
  • Commission a larger version of your favorite subject,
  • Check on the availability of a given image, or
  • Schedule a workshop

We are just a phone call away, at 505 982-4561, or you can email us at: john@johnfarnsworth.com.

 

SPANISH WINDMILL / Daily Painting #960

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

This is the recently restored windmill, San Jose, in Vejer de la Frontera, one of the beautiful Pueblos Blancos (White Villages) of Andalusian Spain. Vejer is my favorite of the pueblos, partly, I'm sure, because it was my first. But also because, while less spectacular than Ronda, or Arcos, it is quite beautiful, yet far less tourist oriented.

It's a dream of mine to return to paint and photograph all the Pueblos Blancos. Maybe this fall? We'll see.

NOTE! I have a special new WORKSHOP coming up in July. Click HERE for details. I hope you can join us.

EVENING IN THE PUEBLOS BLANCOS

Young men in the South of Spain, as everywhere, gather in the evening to brag, argue, laugh, whisper, drink, plan their futures, discuss girls, sports, their jobs, and their families. The air cools, darkness descends, and, finally, they drift off to their homes, their rooms, and their beds.

EVENING SUN ON BRUSHES Daily Photograph #1,645

Brushes

EVENING SUNLIGHT ON BRUSHES

See the brushes in front, on the right? These are the only brushes I have used for the last couple of years, whether working on my daily 6 x 6 inch paintings, or larger works like Trillium Six, which is a painting 72 inches long, by 3 feet high. It’s a remarkable little brush. It’s inexpensive at around a buck and a half, very versatile, and able to cover surprisingly large areas with subtle variations in color and intensity, making for subtle yet more vibrant passages. A lot less cleanup is required, as well.

If you haven’t already, be sure to scroll all the way down to read about your chance to participate in the creation of a documentary Be Home Soon.
