Ranch Studies 1 & 2

Commissioned ranch study 1 8x12

Both of these paintings were done in preparation for a large painting that was commissioned this summer for a ranch owner in our area. I did 7 studies for them to choose from and now that the project is done I thought I would share the studies with you.

Commissioned ranch study 2 7x16

 I had a wonderful time working out at the ranch and in the studio on this commissioned
piece, such a lovely place here in Nevada.

beautiful! the water is so crisp, the blues and greens are inviting, if that makes sense :)

Hey.. The ranch studies are wonderful. Michelle is right.. The water is so real, clear and bright. I like the second one beat, but they are both A+...

Hey Sus, Thank you! wish I could always get it that clear!
