St. Louis City Garden

Grace and Strength

Grace and Strength

Painted in the St. Louis City Garden this morning with Jan. It was a perfect morning and this graceful sculpture ‘Tai Chi Single Whip’ was calling my name. Jan and I both painted the same subject but from different angles. I used a landscape format and Jan used a portrait format. We had a critique afterwards, and exchanged some valuable observations. Painting with another artist is a great way to shorten your learning curve and it’s really instructive to see another painter work out a challenging subject.

    I love what you did with this painting. The background is soft and you just get a nice feeling of how beautiful the air was that day.
