This was executed in my class with Jim Richards. I've been taking from him for almost a year, once a week for, 3 times a month, 8 hours each day. He demonstrates on my canvas when I'm in trouble. As time goes by, he works on my pieces less and less. But he worked quite a bit on this one, and I have to say that I don't recognize any of my own brushstrokes or colors in this piece. But it's good to know that I am beginning to see the difference.
But it's taking up room on my floor.
I will note on the back of the painting that both Jim and I had our hands in this. MARKET SCENE, FRANCE, is a 9x12 oil on board and is available for auction on DailyPaintworks. Bidding begins at $200. http://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/498000
