Canyon sketch -limited palette

I was lucky enough to see a family of foxes near this place. Given the constant cloud-on, cloud-off conditions I'm surprised I was able to get the lighting right. Nothing like practice.

Work in progress

A still life I'm working on ..

Coulrophobic portrait

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.

Zorn self port

Working on my oil handling, this time a self portrait with no blending and bristle brushes using a Zorn palette.


Yet another self-portrait from a little while ago , experimenting with oil...must have been moody this day...

I did some sketch studies of Cornwell in oil just to work on handling. The photo is a little off but you get the idea.

Digital sketch

An invented sketch playing/learning with photoshop. I may work on it some more but for now it is what it is..
