Happy New Year!

Here’s to a better year. Goals this year. Paint more, draw more, blog more, and do more with my art. Here’s a new one for the new year.

Some Christmas stuff

Here’s some watercolors from earlier this month. One tight and one loose. I’ve spent most of the year working in watercolors. I tried an oil painting and man I’m rusty. It’s a completely different animal than watercolor. A goal for next year is to definitely work more in oils. Hopefully there will be one more before the new year.

Pumpkin

I bought a sack of mini pumpkins and finally got around to painting one of them.

6×6 oil on panel.

Dürer copy

Here’s a copy after Dürer that I did last week. It’s watercolor, gouache, and charcoal. It looks nothing like the original. Oh well.

Vintage Halloween

He’s a watercolor I did the other night based off an old vintage Halloween decoration that I remember hung in some of my classrooms as a kid.

Newer Painting

In a effort to slowly repost the stuff that got deleted, I’ll be putting stuff up as I remember what’s missing.

Here’s a painting I was working on a few days ago. I’ve got the Halloween fever. Bad.

Oil on canvas

Valentine’s heart

I’m thinking about making a few of these paintings an selling them for Valentine’s Day. If I do I’ll post the link to my etsy page. Like most  this is a 5×7 oil on board. Looking at these pictures I need better lighting in my studio. Eh. 

  

Cloud Study

It’s been hard trying to get back to work. Slowly but surely I’ll get back into it. This is a cloud color study off a picture I took while ago on vacation. The color is almost there, I guess it’ll be more practice. Anywho its 5×7 oil on panel. I may add it to my etsy at some point.
