Tired after a wonderful hike today, I just focused on the very basics of drawing. I will plan to continue this tomorrow.
Jeremy Lipking is the same age as me. His paintings are amazing, I wonder if I had not stopped if I could be painting as…
Like I said last painting, I’m going to do nothing but draw for the next few painting. This one was awful again.
I found Karin Jurick through a random link online. She did a series called “Bust-ed” consisting of 100 faces from mug shots. The paintings are…
The influence of illustration can bee seen in John White Alexanders painting. Their smooth and flowing compositions are quite relaxing.
Simply amazing. Jeremy Mann is a great example of an artist whose skills I would love to have and I’m current working towards.
Jack Vettriano’s provocative subject and subdued lighting indicates a underlying narrative to each painting, but my real love for these paintings is the way he simplifies the forms masterfully.
Thanks to my later years in college I have a soft spot for 19th century american painters.
Some painting nights are a huge disappointment. Tonight was one of them…
I had my wife pick the subject again. I must say, if she picked a different article every day on her shelf of keepsakes I…
The second half of my orange in the coffee cup painting.
So I decided to try some reflections, and since I like coffee, a coffee cup seemed to be appropriate.
I painted the orange for a second time. This is a fun subject, the bright colors make me crazy because now I want to try…
After a bad day lets paint something easy I thought. Oranges seem easy, right?
I painted the Taiper for a second time. I split up my canvas and did the Taiper 4 times.
After getting home late from dinner I asked Pattie to pick another item from her wall of collectibles.
I painted the Beluga statue for the second time. This time I zoomed into the statue much further and focused on drawing and major shapes.
Joaquín Sorolla, one of the great painters from Spain. His work has always amazed me.
Mostly known for his images of cakes but I really liked his landscapes.
Pattie’s favorite animal in all the world is the Beluga whale and today I painted a figurine of hers that features this majestic creature.
I found Joseph Alleman online yesterday his work captures breathtaking landscapes with such simple virtuosity.
I finished up yesterday’s dolphin painting and did a second simple painting of an apple. Lots of fun today.
I can’t think of a better place to store art that influences me than here on my blog. This post is all about the amazing…
I had to stop this painting early.
