More drawings from my favorite sort of events: Wedding receptions. How delightful to study the faces of generations of family members. Sometimes the resemblances are uncanny! Here are some guests of the Bride and Groom with everyone gathered around laughing and enjoying the fun.

Wedding Caricature: Custom Coloring Page

Custom Wedding Caricature-Bride And Groom by Eileen McCoy, Kansas City artist.
Custom Caricature Orders

   One of the marvelous joys about caricature art drawing is the creative license that accompanies the art. One can bend and mold the figures into whatever container or body type that suits the theme, which, in this case, is the Delorean Car from Back-To-The-Future; the lightening sparks providing a fitting pun for the electricity between them. Once again, I am invited to be a part of people's very special life moments.

 Enjoy, Eileen

Blustery Day in Liberty

 Daily Painting #163/"Blustery Day in Liberty"/Original oil painting on panel 14"X11"
Thanks for looking.
Click to Purchase. 

Why paint outdoors (en plein aire)? The biting cold and wind can actually add some vitality to a painting. The elements certainly propelled me to paint much faster and, hence, make some quick decisions. I like the balance of warm and cool greens in this and the dark green tree hiding beneath the main subject.
 Enjoy, Eileen

Landmark Tree: Belvoir Winery

  Daily Painting #162/"Landmark Tree: Belvoir Winery"/Original oil painting on panel 14"X11"
Thanks for looking.
Click to purchase.

    The second painting in the Belvoir Winery Series.  
Painting, to me, is a progressive problem-solving process.  The problem may be with composition, values, color temperature, etc. Whatever the issue, I find it best to conquer one area a time before moving on to the next.  With this series, I am discovering a vast range of "Greens". I am challenging myself to mix cool and warm greens and to study their arrangement and their existence in nature. It has been a most delightful challenge. 

 Enjoy, Eileen

Cottonwood Meadow

Belvior Winery "Cottonwood Meadow"- oil on canvas by Eileen D. McCoy, Liberty, Missouri 14X11

Available for purchase

     Just 3 miles from home, I have at last landed on a delightful painting paradise and have several paintings planned for the summer here. This is the beginning of my paintings exploring the summer colors of the Missouri landscape. The Belvoir Winery in my hometown of Liberty, Missouri has a myriad of landscape offerings, not to mention the fact that it is a wonderful place to hold an event or reception. Look for more in the series in the weeks to come.

 Enjoy, Eileen
