Today, I am posting this work-in-progress. Got most of the under painting done in gray tones, then layered in some basic hints of color. My goal here is to try to capture the wood and convey a good sense of the over all texture.
Available $75 Had fun painting another robot from the 1950's. I did this with a quick brush as to give life to him and a sense of movement. The ladders in the background made him seem a bit lost and out of his element.
Available$95 The detail work took me a bit longer than I first thought. Finally, I got it pulled together. I love the way the two chop sticks fit together to form the portrait of a traditionalAsian woman.
Just finished this painting of a really cool 1950's, wind-up, robot called "Irwin from Mars." Real name - no joke. I also, posted a video of the work in progress, so you can get an idea of how it was done.
I am a artist living in Salisbury, NC.
What you will find in this blog are concepts, techniques and general inspirations of my paintings. My educations in art began in the mid 1980's with the following: North Carolina School of the Arts, Chicago Art Institute, Penland School of Craft, Oakland School for the Arts. In the 1990's, I began working in Hollywood, California as a computer Special Effects Artist on major Motion Pictures, Music Videos, TV Commercials and location basis Ride Films. After several years of learning the craft, I rose to the title of Animation Supervisor and received film credits on Titanic and Waterworld. Longing for a slower pace of life, I moved back to my home town in 2001. Here I am rediscovering my fisrt love - oil painting.
Most days, I can be found mixing paints and listing to my eclectic range of music.
