So in my last post I asked if I should make more posts as I go instead of waiting to finish paintings… well oops, I didn’t do that at all. I have a couple paintings I can write posts for since its been so long, but I’m going to start with a quick painting I […]Read more "New Painting: Tranquil Ocean"
Lately I’ve only been doing post on finished or paintings with a lot of work already done on them. I’m going to start trying to instead do posts as I go, so I can write a little more detail, and there isn’t as much time in between posts. So this is a new painting I […]Read more "Sunset Cave"
First let me point out that the paintings in this post are not my own. The rough copies on the left are mine, and intended to simplify the colors so that they can be viewed and analyzed more easily. The way we view any color in a painting is affected by all the colors that […]Read more "Color Theory Sunset"
This post is a follow up to my previous posts, Seaside Cave, and Experimental Oil Paint Pouring. You may want to check those posts out if you haven’t. This will be a fairly image heavy post, I’m going to post a lot of detail photos, and let those do a lot of the talking for […]Read more "Finished Painting: Seaside Cave"
I started experimenting with these techniques about a month ago. I wanted to get more organic edges, and textures using oil paint than I could using a brush. The though initial came to me while I was in the shower. The water wasn’t draining fast enough so the water had pooled up in the tub […]Read more "Experimental Oil Paint Pouring"
This is a painting I actually started a few months ago, and worked on it on and off, but never wrote a post about it. I started it so long ago I don’t think I can remember a lot of details about the process, but hopefully the photos and brief descriptions will suffice. I’ll start […]Read more "Finished Painting: Churning Tide"
This is a new painting I started working on earlier this week. Its 16″x20″. I’ve been doing some paintings focused on water recently, but I think I enjoy painting the rocks more so I wanted to do something focused on rock formations. I’ll just go quickly through the process of the painting so far. I […]Read more "Seaside Cave"
This is a small, 12″x12″ painting I have been working on sort of in between working on my slightly larger paintings for the last week or 2. Unfortunately I forgot to take in progress photos during most sessions working on it, and only have 1 in progress picture. As with all my posts of finished […]Read more "Finished Painting, Rising Tide"
I wrote a post about this painting about 2 weeks ago, and here is the finished painting. I figured I would just start with the picture of the final painting before going into other things. I actually finished this about a week ago, but hadn’t gotten to writing a post, which I probably should have […]Read more "Finished Painting, Ocean Archway"
