A William-Adolphe Bouguereau & this painter

William-Adolphe Bouguereau (November 30, 1825 – August 19, 1905) is considered by many to be one of the the finest painters in history. I have spent much time studying his techniques and visiting "the real thing" as much as possible. This image was shot in Europe.

Pensacola Museum of Art

Here is a shot of one of my paintings in a museum setting. I always think art no matter how wonderful or dreadful takes on a different and less approachable feeling in an art museum.

One, two, three

Here are 3 levels in the development of a recent oil painting.
Level one: prisma-color on canvas.
Level two; oil on canvas underpainting.
Level three: finished oil with multiple layers of glazes and scumbles.

If you have specific questions, please ask and I'll be happy to discuss in depth.
