Flowers in her hair

A tricky study. Just trying to push my work. More portraits/people to come.

Time to earn my title.

Painting a day

Been slacking off too much.

Here's a "grey-scale" study of a tea pot.

Been experimenting with Golden "open" acrylics. Not really suited for this, but nice to work with non the less. (Used alizarin crimson mixed with regular acrylic titanium white)


Market sketch

Just a little sketch I did today.

Practicing pen.

Gumdrop again Finished

This is a little better.



Noticed that the lighting on the previous image was terrible so went out and took new photos of everything.

Gumdrop again

A large piece (16x20) 2nd of three.

I'm not quite there yet with it.. May repaint it entirely.

Its odd working so large after working so small..

Played around with some Golden 'open' acrylics today. Pretty much like oil. Maybe a little more sticky. Made an absolute mess. (I was using some little samples I've had forever, so I wanted to use it all up.) Started with a boat sunset thing, wasn't happy with the composition, so changed it to something figurative. Wasn't happy with that so ended up with an abstract.

Prepped a bunch of canvas too.

Pretty much all ready to go. Just need to keep making samples.

Quite a lot of effort for such a little painting.

Not a bad turn out though. Scan is a little funky because the paper is slightly warped.

Frame might need another pass.

Maybe it'll sell...

Something new.

Not as comfortable with watercolour so being a little careful in the treatment.

Just a bit more colour and define the lines and should be pretty nice.

Three of Three

Not bad for two days work.


Second of Three

One more to go.

I'll try to have it done before tomorrow.

First of Three

Burning off the rust.

First part of a triptych.

Not bad. I'd like to go a little faster on the next one.



Took a little break from painting and grabbed a digital copy of my favorite Graffiti I did on Facebook.

Here are a few that I really like.

Another progress

Still rusty.. Guess it'll take a little more time to get back to full power.

Here's what I've been fighting with all day. Painted over yesterday's.

Long Summer

My next program of study starts in Jan 2011, so It's going to be a long 'break'.

Here is a progress picture of the first of my painting a day paintings. (I'm a little rusty so I'll finish it tomorrow and make an extra one as well to make up for it.)
