New Works: "Alexey at the Lakeshore"

"Alexey at the Lakeshore"   12 x 16   oil on canvas panel
(12 x 16, oil on canvas panel)

On the last day of the Portrait Society of America's 2011 National Conference in Atlanta over 100 artists traveled to Piedmont Park for a plein air paint-out. Each group of 10 was accompanied by a member of the conference faculty. Charles was with the group led by Los Angeles painter Alexey Steele.

As Alexey began a small demonstration on the very edge of the lake, Charles was struck by the scene and the patterns created by the light. He had to set up and work fast - he didn't know how long the group would stay there!
