Day thirty one in the month of May

Here's the last lemons of the month! Just some sketches though. 

It wasn't easy, and I missed a couple days, but I hope you enjoyed this months work.

I think next month I'll be focusing more on watercolours and pen and ink.

Day 30 in the month of May

Sorry there was no post yesterday.  Just completely spent after graduation.  Here's a watercolour study I did after a section of another artists oil painting (with some not so subtle alterations.)

It's on a pad of paper that's probably older than I am, and I think I need a couple new colours (or to wait longer between coats.)

Day twenty-three in the month of May

Sorry I didn't post last night, the Internet was down.

Just a progress one, I want to take my time on it so it's nice and polished.

Day twenty-two in the month of May.

Here's the next phase of the odie miniature and some ink sketches I did for fun.

Day twenty-one in the month of May

Here's the start of a mini portrait of Odie.

I think the expression needs some work.


Market day

Here are some pictures from today's market.

Just some random stuff like my booth and my buddy April.

Day twenty in the month of May.

First day of market tomorrow.  So no time for a painting tonight.

Here's a shot of some of the stuff I've made over the last few weeks!

Ah well here's a quick digital painting for you.

Day eighteen in the month of May

Here's a little shot of what I'm working on,
and a "rothko".  Gotta come up with a new name though, cause that one never fit.

Day sixteen in the month of May

Just a quick one tonight.

I might go at this one again later.  Needs more blue.

Day 15 in the month of May

This one was tricky.

Here's a smattering of what I've been working on.
Market tomorrow and maybe some plein-air stuff?

Here's one of many I tinkered with today.  I'll post some extras tomorrow.

Day twelve in the month of May

Playing with some gel mediums.
Maybe a touch more background work and a utensil of some kind in the foreground...

Day eleven in the month of May

This one I spent a little more time on.
I might touch a couple things up but it's not bad.

12x12 acrylic on board.

Day ten in the month of May

No painting today.  No more painting a day paintings on Sunday.  I need a break and this painting sprint is affecting the quality of my work.

Here's some rough Conan sketches though..

Day nine in the month of May

Another quick one, this time on a new surface.  Much smoother. (The support not the style). It also soaks the paint up nicely.

Day eight in the month of May

Getting later and later each night..  Well, tonight I have a good excuse,  I was prepping boards for paintings!  The Bruce Lee movie didn't hurt either (or maybe it did...).

Well, no new painting tonight I'm afraid but the big reveal on the secret project!


Lemon Bag.

Day seven in the month of May

Just a quick one tonight, was gone most of the day. (Our dentist is ninety minutes away.)

Day six in the month of May

Process shot number 2.
And after a rock session, with a lemon.

My apologies for the terrible cropping on the process image, some things must remain hidden... or it'll spoil the big reveal!

Day five in the month of May

A sneak peak at what I'll be selling at the Brockville market.
Unfortunately, due to drying times of certain Golden products I'll have to present this one as "In Process".   (Yes, it's a photograph of an actual lemon not a painting.)

Tomorrow there will be two posts.  
One, of the finished product (at least part of it), 
And two, of another actual painting.

Day four in the month of May

Cutting it a little close today.

I think I'll be definitly working on this one some more.

Can you guess who this is heavily inspired by?

Day three in the month of May

Day Three.

I really need to either work faster, or pick simpler subjects.

Day two in the month of May

Day two.

I took a little longer than expected (and desired).
I think I might have to go back in fix some things later.
Where will the lemon go next?

Painting a day, in the month of May

The title pretty much says it.  In order to be more prolific I'll be doing a painting a day for this month (and posting it here).  If all goes well I'll continue on in the upcoming months right up till I go to Algonquin in September.  Maybe even after that...

8"x 8" Acrylic on canvas.
