4x4 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord

 Week 16 finds us looking for the next member of the Hilton Head Gang...Karin Jurick’s motley crew of wayward artists...still evading capture.
Diane “The Flash” Howard so named because she doesn’t use one. she purposely turns off her flash to get the proper shadows, lights and darks on her subject. What she cannot accomplish with the camera she adjusts with her palette. She is a master of color manipulation and can mask any subject to make them seem anonymous...she remains anonymous also...and uses the darkness to escape the authorities.
For more about the The Hilton Head Gang check out their blog at

Maria Hock, fellow member of the HHG


  1. Il est bon de retrouver vos oeuvres après plus de 6 semaines d'absence... Je rentre tout juste des Philippines...
    Très joli portrait...
    Gros bisous

    1. Translation:
      It's nice to enjoy your work after 6 weeks of absence ... I just returned from the Philippines ...
      Very nice portrait ...
      big kisses

  2. Another success! Love Diane!!! Her mouth and general expression are great!

  3. well, I would have dubbed her "no-flash Howard", but that is because I am so literal. Nice painting of her! She looks innocent of any charges

  4. I really like the color relationships here . . . also the liberties you've taken to push this portrait, something I'm working hard at.


Thank you for taking the time to view my blog and leaving a comment! I read and appreciate each and every one!!
