Until more exciting stuff happens, here are some random sketches of people. Two from life, one Vermeer study, one Edward Burne-Jones study, and a gnome doodle (taken from life of course).
Before this commission, I’d never attempted anything western. But this was fun to try, especially with the desert landscape and wildflowers. Arizona is my home, after all :).
This painting was finished and sent off last week. It’s oil on canvas, 18″x24″. I’m showing here the preliminary watercolor sketch as well…….
Okay. Self-portrait. Here’s me as a study in likeness; oil on birch plywood, 16″x20″.
I had a really hard time photographing this painting. This is the best I could do for now, but the colors are weird, and it’s a bit warpy-like. As soon as I get a better photo, it will be replaced ;). Click to see them in detail.
This very day, the deal was closed on this set of portraits. Each is done in watercolor and ink, 5″x7″. Click here if you’d like to see my current gallery of commissioned portraits.
A peek at my next few watercolor portraits, ordered and sold a couple weeks ago.
