We lost a great friend this weekend..
This one goes out for the wooster.
Sometimes the little ones are the most amazing of all. I hope to live so strong as life as you.

I'm still using a roughish canvas but found a little better method with gradations. Although at this scale (no bigger than 9 by 12 inches) some things can't be "rendered" - unlike with pencil. But I like to use the plates to experiment with paint as well as just to draw.

I've been doing some gouache/watercolor sketches/comps of Edgar Payne paintings. Pretty small but fun to see his approach even if I have to take a different tack to painting them in gouache. It'd be nice to have the original oils to look at...

Not for the coulrophobic (fear of clowns)...I don't know what possessed me to paint a clown, I find them somewhat disturbing. It started as a joke but turned into a digital adventure. No symbolism or greater meaning intended, I just decided to explore photoshop with an imaginative-no ref portrait.

I've been working on writing a book so I haven't painted much just lately but I've been playing with a few non-solvent based oil mediums and stuff so I did this more subdued style with no brush strokes... Not the greatest composition ..but I learned a lot about these mediums.
