Visiting Sargent at MFA Boston

Tomorrow's adventure is to go in to see the Sargent Show at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, with my European traveling companion, Carol Pike Webb.  I've lately been thinking about working in a sketchbook with watercolor and ink which is one of the activities that Sargent enjoyed doing.

4 in 4 for Carol

The Daily Paint Works Challenge - 4 in 4

Mary Pyche, 12x12", oil on canvas, For Grandpa $150
 It was really a lot of fun to paint these cups.  I'm just back from Dreama's Workshop and still had her recommended colors on my palette, so these are painted with transparent colors with her recommended brush--a wide flat brush.  I haven't submitted to Carol Marine's DPW site (and her husband, David's, of course, who does a remarkable job of creating and administering the site) for a long time and hope I can 'get back on the horse'.
