A favorite, probably because I just love to paint out there - National Energy Labs Hawaii - Wawaloli Bay - a lot of interesting techniques in the foreground and love the colors! - 14x11 - plein air oils on board:

this month! I’ve left some of these dates kind of up in the air
until after we’ve had a chance talk about them and I wanted to get this out
before tomorrow (good thing) so i’ll fill in the blanks later. Leo’s is a fine venue and unusual – try to
make this one.
October 17 – Michael and Kathleen’s place –I’ve
heard from Alaina who has been in communication with Michael and Kathleen. They areCANCELLING FRIDAY’S PAINTING SESSION!!!! They want to feel free to hurricanize their house in
prep for a possible blowout and that’s probably what the rest of us should be
doing as well – so – NO PAINTING SESSION TOMORROW, but we’ll see you all on the
flipside. If it storms and you can get
out of the weather – might make a neat painting! Laters – stay safe.
If you get lost – call me – 895-4985
October 24 – Waialea with the Kohala group –
October 31 – Kaloko Ponds -
Painting Sessions are from 9a to 12:30p
with a short critique to follow
I call these small paintings "SKOILS" - SKetches in OILS - they're done in about an hour and are on half of a 9x12 loose sheet of canvas. I've made two cigar box pochade boxes (here's one - http://theislandartist.blogspot.com/2009/09/cigarbox-paintbox.html) one of which is always ready to go out the door when i run errands - on the Big Island there are paintings everywhere and I hate not to be prepared. This skoils is from the Wawaloli Bay kid's pool with the morning light shimmering through the shallow water. 6x9 Skoil
NELH Keiki Pond Shimmer - 9x6 SKOIL
NELH Keiki Pond Shimmer 2 - 9x6 SKOIL
SKOILS are like peanuts - it's hard to just eat one!!
Busy this week. Friday was a bust – after my trip to waimea on Thursday and running (ok – walking sort-of fast) on the treadmill for about 30 minutes, I just didn’t feel like painting and just sketched some people in watercolors and left kind of early. Last two days working on a “liquid abstract” – 30x40
Just the underwater part done – next, water and waves and sparkle – maybe some foam. And finished what looked like a crapcicle from keauhou the week before to where I really like it – back in the “you paint like darrell” days.
Three sisters – plein air skoil
Probably not painting this friday with the supposed hurricane and such – according to how it’s blowing, I might end up at the old airport (would prefer NELH – the tide’s going to be good and the waves are usually astounding, but there’s no cover there unless I want to paint from the back of the jeep – done that before – just back into the view and set up in the rear – we’ll see.
