Two Hundred Sixty-Six!

 

image

The above is another in the series I worked on while attempting to find the right piece to use on my friends baby shower invitation. I suppose I have to admit that this little mouse was the result of watching the movie “The Witches” based off the Roald Dahl book, which happens to be one of my favorites. Enjoy!

Two Hundred Sixty-Five!

As it is finally warm outside and I feel that spring may officially be here I have decided to share a few pieces I have been working on. These pieces are very important to me and I was even nervous about sharing them due to someone stealing them, but I suppose at the end of the day I know I did them and if someone steals them shame on them. This image was the result of a request made for a friends baby shower. Although this was not the final piece used on the invitation it was a very rewarding image. We had decided against it as it felt like an Easter image and we all agreed we wanted variety in the animals depicted. As always enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Sixty-Four

Currently I am working on two portraits of two different Pugs for a friend. Although this image definitly resembles a pug it does not look like his pug, so I guess Ill try again tomorrow. Please take that into account when looking at the images many sections were left in their initial state as I suddenly realized this pug was too fat! In the meantime, enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Sixty-Two!

This is not my favorite, but I like elements of the image. It’s hard to look at this and feel accomplished. I will say that I am as usual a fan of the shapes but not the size relationship or the lack of variation in color. I need to get a better mixing pallet because the one I am currently working on is meant as a travel set, not the stationary at home set. What I find this means is that I have a very limited amount of space for mixing colors so I tend to stay within the same color range regularly.  A simple fix maybe… maybe I’ll just steal a kitchen plate! Enjoy

Two Hundred and Sixty!

Another Day, another image…

I did a few of these random shape based images because I didn’t feel like thinking anymore.  January has been a very good month for me and I have been able to meet a lot of my monthly goals but in doing this I’m exhausted. The last two nights I was not capable of thinking while painting too. I wouldn’t automatically assume one needs to think the entire time they paint because some of what you do is just a natural reaction to the image developing in front of you but when I work on images that are representational I cannot help but be overly concerned with how recognizable the items are within the image.

Enjoy.

Two Hundred Fifty-Nine!

This is a cropped portion of an image I recently made.

I apologize for not showing the whole image, but unfortunately I’m not ready to. Call me crazy but I am still working on figuring out the rights to my images and throwing copyrights on them. I never really had to worry about it but now I feel more open to these kinds of problems. Regardless I love sharing with everyone and hearing the feedback or seeing that people respond well to the image.

I feel like this gang of animals are going on a trip in their green umbrella to some new adventure and all the time the sly fox is appearing to have questionable motives. So much for a cute and fuzzy story! Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Fifty-Eight!

image

Another free thinking image. No pressure involved in the making. I am fully aware that they are not award winner pieces but they keep the creative thoughts moving and that is half of the battle. If nothing else I am constantly learning, whether it be a technique or color relationships. Enjoy.

Two Hundred Fifty-Seven!

image

Abstract color wash exercise. I needed to clear my head and start mass producing. Do not be surprised if you suddenly see an increase in images being posted. I am on a mission to finish this challenge by the two-year mark! What I find most entertaining about this type of image making is that it always starts completely unorganized and as it develops I try to pull the image from what I’ve already laid down. It is such a different type of working method from all of the recent animal images which have to be planned even prior to laying the first mark on the paper. Enjoy.

Two Hundred Fifty-Six!

The project of the day was portraits of a few of my favorite woodland creatures. this included a Chipmunk, Raccoon, Beaver and Deer. I think its interesting how some took on so much character while others are merely an image of a furry creature. Practive makes perfect right?
