Copying Peggi Kroll Roberts for Tim Horn

6x8
acrylic
I am currently in a monthly critique group lead by Tim Horn. This Tuesday, I turn in my assignment for review. We were to pick a painting that we wanted to paint like. I have taken from Peggi for awhile now but before I ever met her, I fell in love with "Figure with Beach Hat" Oil on Canvas, 18x24. I asked Peggi if she minded that I not only painted one of her paintings but if she cared if I posted...she is such a generous spirit. So thanks Peggi! This is my amateurish attempt at trying to paint like you!

    1. I love both of their works. From knowing Tim, I found Stanley Goldstein. I also study with him every Monday night. I do feel fortunate! Thanks for commenting

    1. I do feel lucky and part of the reason I can learn from these wonderful artists is just being in Northern California. There are so many talented and established people here.
