The Row Boat

The Row Boat by Candy Prather, oil on canvas 16"x20" is more of a study to see how I can do with water. No story behind it really; just found the photo online, liked it and decided it would be a good one to paint.

Tableau of Landmarks

Tableau of Landmarks is pen & ink and pencil, 24"x30" on illustration board by Candy Prather. This is the commission I've been working on for several months. We met my client at the framer's this morning and I can hardly wait to see how it's gonna look in the frame.
The landmarks you see are some of the locations of my client's travels: The Sydney Harbor Bridge and Opera House in Australia, the Eiffel Tower and
the Arch de Triumph in Paris, France, and the Big Ben Clock in London, England. It was quite a challenge for me with it being so large, but I'm so glad I did it. The experience, because of all the measuring and care I put into it, has helped me to be more careful with measurements in my paintings. I feel like I "see" better. Now remember, the size and res has been reduced for faster loading, so this photo is missing some of the detail.

This is my first undertaking of doing pen & ink this size. Let me know what you think.

Be blessed!
