The Fantastic Voyage of Mr. Turtle

Strange name but it's still just a still-life and pretty textural..so much that i won't get a decent pic until i can varnish it.

Seaside Palette Knife

Managed to get out the other day for a short and unfortunately sun-interrupted (was cool and cloudy at first) plein air session. Palette knife on rough 10 by 16" linen. (that's a lot to cover with only a knife and changing conditions). Fun, nonetheless!

Drawing of a pelvis

I've been experimenting with red and white chalk on toned paper as a means to draw. Due to the grain of the pencil you can't really render very well so things become somewhat less academic but without resorting to a technique or deliberate style. It's more like the tighter paintings - tighter looking but not rendered.

Pepper mills

Some pepper mill designs for the heck of it.

Still life with feathers and knife

This is a looser still life on rougher canvas using hog bristle brushes, as opposed to the tighter-looking ones of my last few posts.
