Portrait Details

I am having a big watercolor portrait show coming up this June in Sacramento and am very busy taking photos of my subjects to use as painting references. My subjects range from well known local news anchors, fine artists, ballet and stage directors, and my local hot dog diner owner. I will unveil them this coming June on

this blog. Meantime, here are two sneak peeks. I think it fun and instructive to see close ups of paintings. The top watercolor was painted on 140lb. cold press rough and the bottom on 140lb. cold press.

This Saturday's watercolor workshop at My Studio (Studio L)

From 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M., I taught my workshop students at Studio L how to paint this sunrise over the Yosemite Valley. One has to think out a logical painting progression with most all mediums and especially with water color. If you are part of a watercolor society or club and would like a Lobenberg workshop in your neck of the woods call me at 916-737-2311, and we can talk about the possibility. Enjoy these prog. shots, and if you have any comments or questions, please let me know!

Check out my mini PBS, Channel 6 interview - Go to Wait for the gray search bar to come up under the site header. Click on "Video". On the video page, click the video options under "Local Interest". This week, at least, you will see my interview titled "Rob On The Road/local artist interviews" or simple type in my name in the video search box. I am the second artist that Rob interviews. Its all done in my studio: Studio L. Enjoy, and let me know what you think of it. Just in case, here is the link.
