LA River Beach


oil on wood panel..........8x10"
Went back to a familiar location at the LA Wash with Bill Moore and Joe Stoddard in tow. The morning sun breaking through the moist atmosphere made the light appear gauzy and goldeny.

Hi Rene,

Actually, this is my first lesson. I hope to enlighten and not disappoint ;-)

W. K. Moore said...

You are being modest ;-) Anyone reading this please know that Jennifer is a great teacher and has taught me "plenty." From preparing painting supports to mixing color and palette arrangement and composition etc. She is able to really connect with and communicate art to others.. what more can I say... thx

René said...

When is "The European tour" going to be?

René said...

oooh b.t.w. Good luck!! :-D

Atmosphere is what I am struck by in this one. Nice show thru spots on the underpainting, always is a nice touch of color spice...

Don Shank said...

I really like your work Jennifer!! I found you through my friend Stefan Nuetzel. I think your figure work is exceptional and your fresh sense of colour too. I will add you to my list of "must watch" and I can't wait to see more.

Cheers.... Andrew Judd

Isn´t it amazing how small our little world community is!? I went painting with Andrew quite frequently when he lived in Vienna and I learned a lot from him.

Thanks Jennifer for your nice comments. This is another great painting!

Great, let me get my agenda!! :-D

Jennifer McChristian said...

Thanks Andrew...
By the way, I also came upon your blog through Stefan and I think your work is commendable!

Jennifer McChristian said...

I totally agree with you Stefan. Other than the cosmic connecton we artists share, the internet is a such a great tool that provides unlimited possibilites and friendships!
