k. & i paint together / by Philip Tarlow

tree resting 32x36”

k’s cello

7:25 PM: my mentee k. came to the studio today for 3 hours. he completed work on his very beautiful cello painting, and i did more work on tree resting. k. is getting really good; bear in mind this is only his second oil painting and just look at how elegantly sophisticated it is! he added the bow and the stand beneath the cello today, which has made all the difference.

as for tree resting, what can i say? maybe later today i’ll post the numerous revisions this painting has undergone.
